A working Linux system (I have done that with Debian 5, 6 and Ubuntu).
For Windows you will find information here: http://oss.netfarm.it/guides/ris-linux.php
For Linux installation over network just search on the web for Linux PXE install, you will get plenty of useful links.

Finally done it using these tutorials thanks to them:-
http://oss.netfarm.it/guides/pxe.php
http://www.promodus.net/linuxris/
http://www.techienote.com/2010/06/px...tallation.html

points to note :-
1: next server option in dhcpd.conf must be ip of your server
2: samba share must be tftpboot which contains your win files to avoid blue screen error
3: binlsrv is important for providing network drivers to pxe booting clients
4: ls | awk '$0!=tolower($0){printf "mv \"%s\" \"%s\"\n",$0,tolower($0)}' | sh (script is to convert win directory and files to lower case)
5: tftp remapping is important to convert \\ to / slash.
(thanks to all you guys for helping)
