Are these what you are looking for?

I did a PXE installation before for my server about 6 months ago and wrote down all the steps. The only step I did not write down was where to find the netboot files ...

I don't recall there being a separate netboot image for Ubuntu server.

This page might also be helpful for you. It includes a link to download the netboot files.
