Maybe taking a look at http://pxes.sourceforge.net would help you.
This is a different approach than LSTP but running pxesconfig a GUI that
will help you to create you initial ramdisk and all the stuff needed to
boot from the network.

> I skipped the rdev step, because the options were appended on boot.
> 2) in the pxelinux config: append init=/sbin/init root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=mynfsserver:/path _to_filesystem ip=::::::dhcp
> 3) i copied the /dev filesystem from an operational linux machine to the dev directory of the root filesystem that i wanted to use on the terminals (perhaps this can be avoided in the future by using devfs?). I forgot to do this one time and it halted with a 'Warning: unable to open initial console' error.
