Make an entry for it, same way you do for any other item you want to boot from PXE.

Check Google and CentOS forums. Lots of things to do/try:
https://projects.centos.org/trac/livecd/wiki/PxeBoot
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallMultiDistro
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/PXE/PXE_Setup

Autoyast is something that's generated, after you get the system built, so you can 'clone' other systems. If you've already built one openSUSE system, generate the autoyast file from it, if that's the one you want to clone.

Read about autoyast, and again, a link to the document previously, about how to configure a PXE boot server for openSUSE:
http://www.suse.com/~ug/autoyast_doc/index.html
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PX...istro#openSUSE

PXE boot is just that; network boot. It serves up the images you tell it to, so you can install systems without CD/DVD. A Google search turns up a document from Novell, detailing how to do this:
