DHCP Server. dnsmasq, isc-dhcpd, [your choice]. Needs to support
TFTP Server. tftp-hpa. Often the same as the DHCP server. Serves
out the kernel to the booting systems
--- optional and variable ---
NFS Share. Often the same as the DHCP Server. exports a root file
system, and otherwise lets the system finish booting. (Getting
the kernel is just one part of the boot process.)
Bandwidth, RAM, and CPU.
