I have two PCs, also they have network connection. I tried to boot one computer from other one by using only the network (I mean that with out the first computer's hard disk, by only using its RAM memory)
Anybody please tell me how can I do this....

a thin client solution like www.ltsp.org is a very easy and efficient way it'll only take you a couple of hours to set it up
