Umm, PXE is the network-card half of the puzzle. There's nothing special
in the network services needed; my (Redhat) server runs dhcpd and tftpd
to get anaconda stage 1 to a kickstart client. Your dhcpd must provide
"next-server" and "filename" settings (I don't know UNDI - somebody who
does please correct my assumptions if wrong).

Of course, you can't use Solaris' jumpstart "infrastructure" scripts to
install Redhat, but as a network server, I don't see a problem.

Redhat as a Solaris jumpstart server is a different story, however...
(bootparamd grrr)
