Yes, you can.  The gPXE boot from SAN tutorial starts at


and either the Fedora or CentOS instructions are personally[*] guaranteed 
to work, and will use open-iscsi.

In the general case, if you're not following one of the tutorials, you'll 
need an initrd that supports iSCSI boot including obtaining parameters 
from the iBFT.  Install grub/lilo in the usual way on the disk, then make 
the disk image available via iSCSI and point gPXE at it.


[*] I'm the gPXE lead developer, btw.
