I can create you an i386 nfsroot tarball and put it on the fai
website if you like. I will also include a pxelinux.0 binary, that
should be all that is i386 specific. The you have to set up DHCP TFTP
and NFS, that shoukld be all.

But currently I'm at SANE 2004 so you'll have to wait until next week.
