vmware server pxe boot
Has anyone found another way than spending the huge sum of $9 dollars on this: emBoot - Network Boot for Virtual Machines (VM)
To be able to pxe boot a vmware image.
Thinking it would be good as a base install image for wds and an easy way to keep a copy of the original image if I need too.

There is floating around somewhere on the internet a floppy disk image for this. I think I've got a copy somewhere...I know you can do it because I've imaged a VMWare VM using pxe boot from the WDS server before (back when it was RIS though).
I lie....it would appear that the .vfd file I have is for MS Virtual PC I think...but you /can/ mount a floppy drive or make a floppy image to boot if you've got a PXE boot disk already...maybe that would work?

Well I've just got this working anyway you can pxe boot a virtual machine as it's starting up by simply hitting escape and choosing network boot from the boot menu.
I just did this and it downloaded my pxe delivered ghost disk.
The reason it didn't work yesterday when I tried was because I hadn't changed the nic to be bridged.
