Network Install PXE/BootP/TFTP

Im trying to help my professor at school, were trying to setup a linux server, that is configured with bootp/tftp/PXE. the client computer NICs have support to boot off PXE. What we would like to do is if a client computer does not have an OS, it would boot off the server using PXE, and display a menu to the end user, the menu will display a list of Operating Systems to install on the local system, including Slackware, Redhat, Mandrake, Freebsd, Windows 2000, etc. The end user just has to pick one and it will bring up the installation of that OS on the local computer and will get all the files that it needs to install from the file server, the file server will be running samba, nfs, ftp, httpd. How would i go about setting this type of envroment up. thankyou =)

you could refer to RedHat DOC
try it , but please use the GUI tool too much, I got some problem.
then know why , use text mod to configure it will more easy.
maybe the problem has been resolved.

I don't know how to use that to install windows 2000 , I didn't find SuSE pxe boot image,
if you know how to do that please let me know.
