can i deploy a duplex aio on 2-3 nodes? and worker/storage on 4 nodes

second to that, since we cannot confirm our network environment to
meet the pxe boot on 169.254 for other controller-1, worker nodes

it states here

PXE Boot Network

however, this doc states

Configure a PXE Boot Server

1) can i boot all nodes from pxe server?
2) after booting installing the controller-0 node i can then pxe boot
install controller-1 node
3) in this scenerio how does controller-0 discover controller-1 so i
can set the host  "system host-update 2 personality=controller"
4) does the same apply to workers

memory, how would you deploy to get a full 6 nodes with storage and
