Need linux network bootdisk..

I'm actually trying to install Windows Servers from a fileserver, and need a way to:

1. Boot from a diskette.
2. Delete all partitions (if any exists)
3. Create a C: partition (8-10 gigs or so) formated as FAT or FAT32
4. Connect through ftp to a fileserver and download some driectories containing the Windows files I need and
5. Reboot and start a .bat file that will start the installation of Windows

I imagine all of this is possible under Linux (at least the first 4., I'm not sure how I could make it reboot and execute the .bat file under Linux.... )

Any ideas, comments are welcome..

This can also be done with a normal boot diskette and mapping a network drive in DOS.

Have you tried Norton Ghost?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
