[solved] Load an ISO over HTTP using iPXE?

RE: Load an ISO over HTTP using iPXE?
My example script provides examples of a lot of different things you can do with iPXE:

Be aware that the install ISO must be capable of network booting for things to work or must be completely initrd-based (that is, the entire installer is loaded into memory immediately). Whenever the OS kernel has booted up iPXE is no longer in control and all file fetching must be handled by the OS kernel. Look carefully at the Ubuntu installer and live entries in the menu. They show how you can make debian-installer and casper able to read its files from the network (I use NFS).

The RedHat-based distributions I don't have a lot of experience with.
