The first step is to create a bootable floppy disk that loads the proper network drivers, maps a drive to the server's share, and runs Ghost.exe (There are several network boot diskettes around that would make a good starting point - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=network+boot+floppy)
Once you've got it working as a physical floppy disk, use WinImage to make it into a floppy image file (uncompressed)
 Install TFTP server software. (I use TFTPD32) You'll need to get and configure PXELINUX and its associated files (MEMDISK to load the image as a virtual floppy drive) (http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/PXELINUX will get you started)
You'll also need to make changes to your DHCP server, so it gives each client the TFTP server address and the file name to request (PXELINUX.0). (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=PXE+DHCP+SERVER+2003)
Hope this points you in the right direction!
