Remote Os Install


Is there a way to install Fedora Core 1 or Centos 3.3 remotely? I have a dedicated server and it's running Fedora Core 2 but i want to change OS. This a shell server and customers always complain about psybnc faults. Psybnc doesn't seems to be working well on Fedora Core 2 that why i want to change to Core 1. If anyone knows how to do please reply.

I believe you should use pxe to install your FC3 remotely.
You need a dhcp server, tftp server (atftpd), syslinux, memdisk and a disk image of FC3.
Maybe there is a tar for pxe for FC3 already packaged somewhere? I know there is one for Ubuntu and knoppix.
