I think this may have been asked before but the answer to this will determine my next question (with lots of points).

Can a diskless linux distribution be set up (not sure which distro yet) to use PXE and get its setup files from a windows nt4/2000/2003 server?

The Linux unit will be doing no more than routing and a bit of firewall work (using iptables) so it shouldn't need to be too weighty. The host system will be a 2.2Ghz celeron with probably 512MB of RAM.

Cheers
