pxe boot an iso file


there are many linux bootable iso files which do not support pxe booting directly.

pls advise if it is possible to configure a pxe server that supports iso file to a pxe client?

thank very much for your quick reply but, at first glance, this is not what i need. cobbler is for installation of o.s. especially linux.

i want to use pxe to boot any iso including but not limited to seatools-for-dos, sysrescudcd, knoppix, etc. some of them may not be pxe ready.

It will take a little work to make a non-pxe booting distro into a pxe-booting one... good luck
