Yes you can ;)
I made it works by configuring my PXE server to only answer to PXE 
requests (what usual dhcp doesn't).
The only point to solve is to found some free IPs to provides without 
making some collision with the official DHCP server.
You just need a few one... ask your administrator too free you.

Have a look to my documentation, it provides some more explanations.

Using a pool which allow PXE request and deny others works. I did it in 
my previous company with success.
