How to network boot and install OS

Specs: windows 2000/XP, P4 256 MB

Hello,

I have a computer that has no floppy disk and CD-ROM. It is connected on a network with some computers running windows 2000 and windows XP.

I need to format and re-install new OS for this computer. I learned that I can use network boot this computer, format and then install OS over network. Is that true. If yes, please advise how to do that.

Thanks and best regards


Alex
Nice to meet all of you
