depends on the OS. for some it's very simple providing you can
read and follow instructions, just a handful of steps. for others
iirc you get to either configure NFS or rebuild your boot loader...

DHCP and TFTP servers are available for almost every OS, then you
just need to place a boot-loader and kernel (and maybe a boot loader
config file) in a directory accessible via TFTP, and configure DHCP.
no need for Linux, or even any Unix-like OS.
