Setting up PXE server

Folks

On a lark, I am trying to set up a PXE server so I can use network
boots to load new computers {some of which are virtual) at
home. It's more of an intellectual exercise than a work
necessity. I've read several "how to" documents, and even the one on
the RedHat site doesn't help. (For example, it refers to
/etc/xinet.d instead of /etc/xinetd.d, and the careless references
continue elsewhere.)

My goal is to make it possible to load a computer using network boot
with the equivalent of the "net-install" of Centos 7. My gateway
computer serves as a DHCP and (internal) DNS server for my in-house
machines. Are there any good references, or working examples I could look at?

My gateway is running Centos 6, but I'm hoping the model will work
when I convert the gateway to Centos 7.

Thanks

David
