Thats a broad topic for a Q & A board. Your first step should be to try the LQ search button. Next you should probably have a look at the Diskless HowTo's over at tldp.org - they should give you the layout for what you need. Once you get started and have some more specific questions you should stop back here with any problems you encounter.
