Is there an easy way to boot ubuntu from network a.k.a. PXE?

I would like to setup a PXE server, connect an old laptop (without cdrom nor working usb-boot-option) to the network and boot Ubuntu through the network.

I found this howto

but that seems a bit much for just that little installation. Or the manpage is somewhat overwhelming. what is the easiest way to achieve this?


I don't think there is an "easy" way, but this link might be slightly less over whelming. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallServer
