What's it meant to do? I'm very interested in being able to boot my own kernel.

If a tech does check, he will see what you are doing

From what i gather, the rps boots from iSCSI, it just uses a kernel on the network. We can boot a RPS using the HD option, however i can not seem to get grub to work, might be a case of the iSCSI. Would this not be possible through a VNC connection?

No,

The RPS boots from iSCSI SAN, not local HDD.

Get a Kimsufi or Big OVH and install manually.
