A computer CAN be booted without a hard disk, using BOOTP.  You have to have a server on your LAN that has BOOTP enabled, with the OS image to send to the client PC.  

If your LAN adapter has a boot chip, then you're OK.  If it doesn't you'll need to make a boot floppy.  If you do a search here in Networking, looking for bootp, you should find a previously-answered-question from a couple of months ago that had links to sites that have downloadable boot disk images.
