    How do i set up Pxe boot

    Hiya


    How do i set up Pxe boot for something like thinstation.

    I already have WDS server running and have used PXE within that context. Would I need to install anything new?
    Is there a tftp root folder somewhere within server 2008 if i have WDS setup?
    Do i need a seperate tftp setup on a linux box?


    I am a bit lost, thought it would be easier to ask here.

    Anyone help with this?

    Thanks

    The way you'd do it is to introduce a new PXE system basically, with a menu of options - one of which is pointing at the WDS one, and the other being the linux related stuff.
