If you have a Linux dhcp server add something like the following to the

    allow bootp;
    allow booting;
    filename "/pxe/pxelinux.0";

The next server line points to the machine that your tftp server is on.

Install the tftp-server and syslinux packages and configure them per one
on the many documents available on google and all should just work. If you
still have questions once you do a little reading ask specific questions
and someone here may be able to help. The old RHL9 docs on this subject
are still applicable as are the RHEL docs, both of which are available on
Red Hat's web site.

You also want to look at Kickstart. It will allow a lot of customization
to your install. There is a separate list for Kickstart.
