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

use acronis True Image and Snap Deploy.
you can use Acronis Snap Deploy to create a Bootable media to boot or you can configure Acronis PXE Server which is included in Snap Deploy.

or You can use Microsoft Windows Deployment Server.

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.
