Is anyone able to install Xenserver by PXE?

Is anyone able to install Xenserver by PXE? I'd really appreciate some help, I've read and and tried all of the documents issued by Citrix/Xen, but because I am so new to Linux in general I haven't been able to get it working.

If anyone can help, I have got as far as the 'client' server to pick up a DHCP address, but fails at the PXE-E32 Open Timeout error message, now I'm stuck, I have a feeling my TFTP isn't configure correctly and I am not sure if I need NFS installed or not, the document is not clear.

Maybe someone can point me towards a better step by step document, but believe me, I suspect I think I've read them all.

Can you set up a known pxe usable distro and get it to work?

About the most easy way I have seen is to use knoppix. Start terminal server and see how the scripts make all the settings and folders and start services. If you want you could then simply edit those with your own. Might be a good first step any just to see if it can be done. It will let you pxe to knoppix.

I think every knoppix 3.2 to 5.3 works. There might be one or two that have bugs. I am pretty sure I did try the 5.1 and 5.1 dvd and they work.
