i am sorry, as far as i know, you can NOT remote boot XP PRO from another computer through network.

another related product, Microsoft Windows XP Embedded, can do that. if you were referring to this, please see the following URL:

Microsoft Windows XP Embedded - Remote Boot

hope it helps,

what do you actually need? XPE is not for common users and business/home use, it is mainly used by those developers of embedded devices. are you one of them? ;) additionally, i am afraid that you can not obtain XPE from retail channel.

anyway, you may try to get the evaluation version of it from here:

all the answers will depend on your actual business or personal requirements. but, it seems that XPE is NOT suitable to these.
