I discovered how to used PXE boot with network cards, that don't
support PXE boot itself. The newest version of etherboot (currently
5.3.9) also supports booting pxelinux that is needed in FAI. So you
can easily create a small boot floppy (about 20k) for your NIC which
then can do the PXE boot. Works perfectly for me.

On this web page, you can create and download the etherboot image for
your network card. http://rom-o-matic.net/
