Good catch. Didn't know you could even setup an RIS server on Linux.

Are you asking how to set up a PXE server on CentOS? Google has many guides on how to do this, the links provided by me and TobiSGD are for how to get Windows working under PXE, which is what you asked in your original quesiton.

From Google, first hit...from the CentOS site, if you tried to look.
