I might have miss read what you are trying to do but the program
systemimager can take an image of a system and distribute it across
the network.  We tested it at work before deciding on storix for
network distribution of our baseline operating system.


Here is gentoo's bootloader setup page (grub and lilo).


It is not ubuntu, but grub is grub, on a side note i would recommend
(regardless if you like the distro or not) reading the gentoo hand
book and doing a grueling install of it if you would like to learn a
little more about basic OS stuff and compiling the Linux kernel
itself, granted not as much as Linux from scratch.
