installing the RPL service (remoteboot service) on the NT server is a good starting point. Once installed the client should boot without hard disk or floppy using the RPL prom on the NIC.
If it tries to boot from harddisk then run rplenabl.exe on the client PC from a floppy.

Note though that RPL supplies the microsoft networking client 2.2 which is basically LanManager. AFAIK you can't RPL into NT workstation.
