Installing FC5 on Headless Apple Xserve

Good morning all. I'm attempting to install FC5 on a headless Apple Xserve but am having problems configuring the PXE OS. I'm using the pxeos command to setup the PXE OS but it is asking for the location of the images/pxeboot directory which does not exist in FC5. So what is the proper way of setting up pxe so I can boot the Xserve off of tftp and do a remote FC5 install?

Thank you for your help

Apparently I need the Xserve to netboot the ppc64.img. Does anyone know how to do that?

Apparently OpenFirmware does that.

Now just figure out how to do it.

How did the install go?

I've got a headless G5 dual processor xserve I'd like to install Plesk on. FC5 seems like the way to go but only if it'll work and can be repeated relatively painlessly. Did your install work?
