If your network cards include support for PXE, you can do it fairly easily. On an RHEL3 or Fedora machine, just run redhat-config-netboot (you might have to install it first).

When I do this I put the CD images in a directory exported over NFS and extract the "images" directory from the first CD into that same directory -- redhat-config-netboot wants this directory. You need to do that *before* you run redhat-config-netboot :-) The RHEL3 documentation also tells you what you need to do with DHCP ... so it's a good idea to read that or the equivalent stuff for Fedora before you start.
