Yes it does work I have used it in the past and it works
great with elilo. By diskless, I assume you mean that everything
comes from the network including elilo, vmlinuz and initrd.

If so I strongly suggest you take a look at the elilo documentation.
On a RHAS system this is /usr/share/doc/elilo-3.2/netbooting.txt. Go
to section 5/ Netbooting. There are examples of configurations.
