I am in the quest for ultimate pxe-way of booting and installing OS-es. My idea is to find me a software that would act as a pxe server (along with DHCO and TFTP) and give me an option of serving various boot/install images. I've considered Widows server 2000/3/8, but it's RIS/WDS is only useful for limited number of OS-es and, to my knowledge, no custom-made intalls are possible since it is only deployes WIM-format images, and there are no WIM makong tools.. atleast, none that I could find. I kind of gave up on Windows server option, and I'm looking at the linux counterpart for an answer, but all I could dig up are "diskless boots" and "net-installs"... and it seems to me that linux servers deploy linux only.
My wish is to have a choice of ANY kind of OS on a bootable image. LINUX, XP, Freedos, pc-booter.. Anything that is capable of booting the PC, and have it ready on a single machine that will deploy it over LAN. I don't care if it is windows-based, or linux, or whatever.
Is there any kind of server that can do that?
