I want to install windows XP from an image. Image should be located on a PC in LAN. I want to boo the new PC with a CD which can run that image through LAN.

In an office I have seen this kind of installation, they used to boot the PC with a CD and just give the IP address of the remote PC and the path of image file. OS starts installing from that image

Corporate edition page 16 of the link I supplied earlier.


Or

You connect to the network first using DOS commands and drivers.  These set the network drive up as a drive you can access.

Then you use Ghost to install from an image file on the server drive.
