I am hoping to have a PC running latest Ubuntu/Debian.
The thing is that I would like it to Boot from lan. It will probably be located downstairs so it will also need some kind of way to stream the screen over lan Quick as if it were attached to the monior.

I would be reall nice if i could have his pc in a closet and the only wires attached would be the power cable and the ethernet cable.

I would really appreciate it if someone could link me to the things i will need for this to work

the operating system that will be used to wake this computer is vista 64 bit ultimate

I'm a bit lost, so if you could provide more info.

You have a PC you want to install Ubuntu on and have this act as a server?

It will probably be located downstairs

Or this one will be the server.

Just so we can be clear: 1 PC will need to have Ubuntu installed and
functioning as a server.
The second PC will still need to have a mouse, keyboard and monitor.
(a normal desktop/workstation)
Give me some more details about your idea.

Sounds like you want a computer to act as a VNC server. The first step would be to install Ubuntu /Debian then set up VNC, If your going to just use it on your home network then it will most likely be very simple. Some things to get you started:
