[K12OSN] Question about GRUB

We have a lab of 28 diskless clients running off a server with K12LTSP
The clients all have PXE bootable NICs.
Without a disk, it does a network boot without a boot diskette.
I installed a disk and loaded it with Windows98SE (for a unique school
need), then loaded 4.2.3EL as a personal desktop.
It's now set up to dual boot to Win98 or Centos.
We'd like to put it back on-line with the LTSP server.
I think that would mean a 3rd entry in the /boot/grub/grub.conf file.
At present, I can change the delay time and alter the default boot OS by
changing the file.
What would I need to add(the syntax) to the grub.conf file to make it
boot off the PXE NIC?
Is there anything else that I need to change/add/do?

# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this

# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that

#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.

#          root (hd0,1)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3

#          initrd /initrd-version.img
