So this is something ive wanted to learn (Network booting) but It seems everytime I look it up, there is something unnecessarily complex or its just obscure, So I figure id post it here and try to find something a little more intelligible for others that might search... as well as learn myself.

So can anyone point me to a cross-platform method of booting through a network?

The thing you are looking for it called setup PXE Install server. It allows you to mount .iso and allows you to setup network installation on your network. Check out this documentation.
