    OK, so here is my setup: I have my main computer (specs on left) attached to a 8 port 100Mbit netgear switch. I have another computer (Atlon XP 1.7GHz 768MB RAM Radeon 9600 PRO) attached to the same switch. I want to install Ubuntu 10,04 server x86 on it using the net work. I am running Windows 7 on my main machine. How would I do this? If need be I can boot some form of Linux on my main machine (probably puppy or damn small).

    If you have a linux host on the network you can setup pxelinux with a dhcp3 server running on the same box. This can feed an address to the computer as it boots, and then offers an image to be installed on the client.

    I dont know if this can be done from a windows box, you would have to do research.
