Setting up a PXE boot server to install windows ghost image

I'm just doing some research on the subject. I was curious if there was any literature or links that people have used to specifically do this.

I have a PXE boot server set up based on these instructions:
http://linux-sxs.org/internet_serving/pxeboot.html

We are constantly building PCs with the exact same windows install with the exact same programs/settings on each. We figured it would be more efficient to build a boot server that can serve out this image.

Any of you have experience with this and might be able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

The setup described in the link you provided is to setup a stand-alone PXE server within a self-contained switch.  If you have managed switches, you can VLAN this out.


Check out this site:  http://www.petenetlive.com/Tech/Windows/WDSGHOST/WDSandGHOST.htm

This will setup PXE on a windows box and uses your pre-existing DHCP.  

Hope this helps
