You might not have to use PXE to do a remote install.
I used to mount a copy of the install .iso file using loopback and then
share it out using NFS. Then all you need to do is boot up the target
system with a network install image, on a USB key, floppy disk, etc...
When the installer asks for the location of the install media give it
the network address of the .iso image on the NFS server.
I had several different distributions set up on my FTP server. My
friend would come over and plug into my network and install whatever
flavor he wanted on his laptop that lacked a CD/DVD drive the same way
you have no drive.

To mess up a Linux box, you need to work at it.
To mess up an MS Windows box, you just need to *look* at it.
