PXE can be a bit confusing initially, yes - the syslinux docs are
pretty good though. But if you've configure it once, you can just
leave it in your dhcpd.conf forever - quite useful :)
Customise the config file and you can get it to give you a choice of
distros to install too.
PXEgrub is reasonably neat too.
