Netboot Mailing List (by thread)

I found a HOWTO for all this netboot business, but it was about as clear as
mud, gave no indication of what to put on the floppy and nothing about how
to setup the server. Can anyone recommend a better guide? I understand the
principles, etc. of everything (I run X sessions on a pc at home via a full
linux system but am looking to free up a hard drive).

I've in fact got a hard drive that I want to use in place of chips/floppies,
but any linux distro I come across takes up more than the 120mb of free
space just for system files. I'd like to be able to just turn the thing on
and X -indirect to my big server once it's booted (automatically of course).
Any recommendations for good sites etc.?
