    Hi and welcome

    knoppix is a linux livecd.
    It gives you access to a client tools (command line, browser, desktop, etc).
    As such you can use tools as ssh, rdesktop, etc which can be used for remote management.

    Fully automated installation is a different usecase and involves daemons like dhcp, tftp, http, ntp, etc.
    Knoppix is not a server distribution.

    Other than that, if you primarily want to provision microsoft operating systems, it might be easier to do it with ms tools.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    In a linux world: Yes
    You need the correct bios settings on all machines (boot from network) and a staged pxe boot system, that
    a) can identify the machines
    b) change what happens at pxe boot according to config

    No idea about windows though, you probably should ask a windows forum.
