Which operating system do you wish them to boot? 

It should be possible to support a TFTP and NFS services on Win2K3 and boot 
LTSP with rdesktop pointed back to the Windows server (running Windows 
Terminal Services), or if there is an LTSP server on the same net they could 
use XDMCP or LDM to connect.

If you want them to boot Windows, I think you are out of luck.
