netboot

http://netboot.sourceforge.net/index.shtml
'netboot' boots an operating system through a network interface on an x86 system using common protocols like DHCP and TFTP. It has all the tools necessary to generate bootrom images and boot image files. It can boot DOS (in most variants: MS-DOS, DR-DOS, PTS-DOS, FreeDOS etc.), GNU/Linux, and FreeBSD. It also contains a boot menu compiler. The bootrom code uses the network drivers shipped with each network card, so they can be used with almost any such card available for x86.
