iso load via pxe

hi all,
Every body use iso image booting via pxe.
I tried use that way, but it doesn't work
append initrd=initrd.img-2.6.26 rw root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk_size=127464 init=/bin/init ide=nodma ide=noraid pnpbios=off media=cdrom iso1=nfs:// ip=dhcp PROTOCOL=DHCP

It's realy, booting iamge without mounted its on source host like this?
mount -t iso9660 /mnt/share/myiso.iso /mnt/iso

Dude - you can boot an OS via PXE. You can boot an OS from a CD. You can make a CD from an .iso file. Heck - you can even use something like VMWare or VBox to boot a virtual OS from a virtual CD that happens to be an .iso.

no, I think what usage virtual machine it's no good idea, because my goal its distribute install OS on multiply desktop PCs. I seen tiny linux images with kernel and installer, but they use already predetermined seeders like nfs. Where I can defined my internal nfs so as to use with similar of this linux images?
