  • You will need a RIS Server (Remote Installation Service) to network install Windows XP

    One is included with Windows Server 2003 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325862

    or Windows Server 2008 has WDS (Windows Deployment Services) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771670(WS.10).aspx

    These do take a lot of configuring to get right for your environment so you may want to look at 3rd party software such as http://winner.windowsdream.com/
