I was just searching for this myself and I found this guide. It is written for Vista but I have heard it works very well with 7. I haven't tried it myself, but I plan to soon.

I finally got my network install up and running! It took a long time as I had quite a bit of hiccups, but it is installing as we speak. For the most part the directions on that page are great. I had some unsupported hardware issues, which were not fun to fix.

Two little tips I found that wasted about ten minutes of my time;
-If you are doing this over a network (as opposed to crossover cables as the guide suggests), you must disable DHCP on your router.
-You must run TFTPD32 as Administrator

Hope your install goes smoothly! If not just post any questions here and I will see if I can help out.
