Query regarding Booting Linux VM (Virtual Machine) from a network server

I am interested to boot my VM with PXE BOOT through command line (not
through GUI)

After doing google I found  many docs on this topic but all explains
about server side configuration   I hardly find any doc which explains
client side configuration that needs to be done for VM .

 What configurations / steps should I follow on the client side so
that my VM will be enabled for NET boot ?

Please remember I am interested to do everything on command line. No GUI.

      I would like to boot my VM with Centos / Fedora linux.  Suppose
server side configuration is done.  Now what should I do on client
side (through command line, no GUI), so that VM will come up with NET
boot shell prompt ? after that it will download CENTOS / Fedora image
from server.
