Hi and welcome to LQ.

If I understand, you want to be able to net boot Linux on 100 disk less computers using a Windows server to allocate IP addresses to them and send them some Linux distribution.

If that's right, which Linux distribution do you want to run on the disk less machines ? If we do not know that, we can't help you.
