  Do you mean to set up a way to download DOS and Windows into each workstation -- from a central server?

I think the modern term for this setup is "push" downloading & auto-configuring.

What DOS version?  What Windows version?  What type of computers are you wanting to do the above with?

  I hope you will have or plan to buy site-licenses for DOS and Windows  :)

No one installs dos or dos based windows anymore.  So why would you want to do this?

OP must have a stack of 486s or early Pentiums awaiting use.

Maybe he has NT4 server also that with Network Administrator can make dos boot to the server disks and run setup for Windows for Workgroups from the server.

I'm a complete novice, a beginner, concerning server operations.  I'm going to listen-mode only in this topic  :)

WDS - windows deployment services

You should review the requirements.  Most dos or old windows machines didn't support PXE boot.
