Hi, is it possible to do something like this with tftpd32?

Place all my bootable .iso files (for example, win xp, 2000, vista, osx86, linux distros, etc) in some folder on the tftp server and then have tftpd32 point to the particular .iso file depending on what OS I want to install, so that when the client boots off of PXE (or something similar) it would immediately boot this ISO file as if it was locally booted off a cd-rom?

I understand this can be done if you want to install Windows in particular, but I'm wondering if it's possible for any random bootable ISO file?

Thanks.
