How to boot a Redhat Linux machine from a Windows server?

I am trying to boot a Linux PC remotely from a Windows PC. What would be some recommendations as far as what tools/methods to use for booting a diskless Linux PC remotely from a Windows PC? After doing some extra research, it sounds like this can all be done by having the diskless PC issue a BOOTP request to get an IP address followed by a TFTP request to access the Linux image on the Windows PC. I am just not sure how to go about setting all of this up though. Thanks for any help you can offer!
