Thin Client assistance needed

I need some expert input.   I am looking to PXE boot a XP embedded image (not to install an image) from an Ubuntu LTSP server.  The reason for this is we need to run some tests on the XP Embedded environment with out actually installing anything to flash on the thin client.  What I need to know is:

Can this be done?
Where can I find the bootable image file for XP Embedded? (Again, not the bootable install package the actual pxe boot image)
Where do I place the image file within Ubuntu to boot it?  Is it the same location as the linux bootable image file.

The thin clients are currently PXE booting to a linux image in the /opt/ltsp/i386 folder, but we need to run the tests in the windows environment rather than linux for an apples to apples test.

you need some tftp server instaled. Usually it defaults to files in /tftproot (and that directory gets created when you install tftp-server ;)

I found a different way of accomplishing this through bootable USB drives

I found a different way of accomplishing the task and there was only one expert that contributed and they're suggestion was not helpful in answering the question that I asked.
