I can't say much about the RH pxe thing, AFAIK this is really old.

In short you can boot linux on almost all pxe enabled clients with 
pxelinux (btw: 1.67 is the latest version). The only exception is really
old roms (pre-1998, e.g. the Intel Lanmanager 0.99X series). In the latest
pxelinux version there's also 'memdisk', with this you can even boot
floppy images over the net.

See the website for more information.
