    PXE > DHCP > TFTP - A Question

    Currently my clients boot from floppy to discover DHCP on my Windows Server. The DHCP redirects my clients to another Windows Server where a tftp server is running alongside terminal services. The TFTP method works from floppy disk.

    But now I am trying to boot from a PXE network card. Basically I need a PXE file somewhere in between the DHCP and TFTP and was wondering if it was possible to host this file on either of the Windows servers, host a pxe file on my linux cachebox (open to public but protected) or would I need a seperate linux server ?

    Is it as simple as copying the pxe.linux file from ltsp ?
