ipaq desktop network boot

I have never done a network boot, and I am trying to do so with an Compaq Ipaq Desktop PIII 500 with an 810e chipset.  I choose network boot during POST, and get the error PXE-E53 "no boot file name received".  Does anyone know of an online reference on network booting?  Is it different depending on manufacturer (proprietary?).

The Boot Agent received a DHCP or BOOTP offer,  but has not received a valid filename to download. If you are using PXE, please check your PXE and BINL configuration. If using BOOTP, be sure that the TFTP service is running and that the specific path and filename are correct.

Here are the error codes for intel cards:

Hope this helps

What in creation are you saying?  Who offers a file to the booting computer?  Another desktop on the network?  The router?  What kind of file is this?  Does some PXE app need to be running on the router, or another computer on the network?

you need to have a pxe server on you're network to boot from, thought you had one already one running.
But i see you already find a list of all the pxe boot systems. If you're starting with it, i can recommend MS Remote Installation Services it's very easy to setup.
