No single ISO can be netbooted by itself through PXE. You'll always have
to put a bootup part of the ISO on the server.
Pxelinux then downloads this part and executes it, and the executed
program finds the ISO by itself and mounts it,
then continues booting. WinPE does this, BartPE, and many Linux
distributions and likely also more slightly exotic operating systems
with a TFTP client program I could also make FreeDOS do this, but so far
experiments have only been made with HTTP through Wget.
(some people using a ftp.exe program).
I don't know of any opensource DOS client software that can handle SMB
protocol or any Linux network mounting methods.
No idea how RIS (Win2000/XP/2003) works, got no serverOS from Microsoft.
