434"Short for Pre-Boot Execution Environment. Pronounced pixie, PXE is one of the
435components of Intel's WfM specification. It allows a workstation to boot from
436a server on a network prior to booting the operating system on the local hard
437drive. A PXE-enabled workstation connects its NIC to the LAN via a jumper,
438which keeps the workstation connected to the network even when the power is
439off."
