I would still say to use a normal linux distro since it can do it.  We also
have a fancy machine called Pony with tons of disk space for networked
images.  It would be trivial to configure ubuntu as a pxe server, since it
is ubuntu.  See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallServer  It will
allow you to install ubuntu from it.  Once you understand how it works, you
can trivially add other distributions or Operating Systems like FreeBSD,
NetBSD or even OpenBSD.
