Since I need to go from what is officially supported, here are the requirements from our User's Guide:
"• Operating system: Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, or Windows XP.
For Windows NT and 2000, ensure that the Microsoft MSI service is running (XP includes
MSI by default). If you have installed the latest service pack for either OS, MSI service
should be running. Otherwise, you can deploy it to the target PXE representative from the
console by following these steps: Click Tools | Distribution | Scheduled tasks, click the
Schedule script toolbar button, select the MSI service deployment task, click OK, drag
the target devices to the window, and click the Set start time button to schedule the MSI
• Installed LANDesk agents: Enhanced Software Distribution agent and Inventory Scanner
agent. For information about installing agents, see the Installation and Deployment Guide."
This should work fine as long as you follow the instructions in the PXE Representative deployment script that LANDesk would use to distribute. Copy the files to the appropriate locations and launch what needs to be launched. Copy the folder structure that you would see on a normal managed client that you put the rep on
What won't happen that way is for the rep to appear in your inventory and allow you to choose it for any tasks. You could get this by launching an inventory scan using ldiscn32.exe from the core server's logon share. This last piece will consume a license though.
I haven't tried this since around 8.6 so I'm not sure if anything has changed apart from the way the files are copied (used to all get installed by the osdrep.msi file).

Thanks Mark, I'll give it a shot and see what success we have.
