Have a look at The Linux Terminal Server Project. 
http://www.ltsp.org/  That's is about the easiest configuration out. 

You can use rsync to make the Client OS Layout and manually edit all
files as needed, pxe dhcp nfs and tftp. It's a nightmare to do.

An alternative method would be obtain the "system-config-netboot"
package from Fedora Core 6 or 7 that's if you can get it to work
correctly. Red Hat omitted it in v5.0 and also I think in 5.1. Bugzilla
on red hat says they are going to release it in a later release. 

IMHO I believe it is getting replaced by cobbler. Any one on the list
know for sure?
