It is possible to have NT Workstations boot up with a BOOT PROM installed in your network card.

I haven't done it, but have talked to an engineer who has.  You need to install the Remote Boot Service on the Server through the Network Control Panel.

You don't have to accept this answer, as I get a bit Vague.  There is only a few network cards NT supports out of the box (nt4), they are the big brands like Etherlink III, Novel NE2000, the common cards.  There is a program that then gets installed in your Start, Programs, Administration menu called the RPL Manager, or something like that.

In there you create your images for the operating systems you wish to boot off this Remote Boot Server.  It doesn't have to be a dedicated machine as far as I know.

Once a machine remote boots, it runs the desired operating system, and has no hard drive.

Therefore high speed networks are a requirement, as they demand quite a bit from the network.

I hope this helps.  If it is too vague, please don't hesistate not to accept the answer:)

NT will act as a remote boot server but can not be a remote boot client (page file must be stored on local hard disk) - sorry
