Etherboot. Also I applied for a gsoc project for implementing complete TCP/IP in grub2

Unfortunately, my motherboard does not support PXE boot.  It's a Via
C7 (i686) mini-ITX board.  Grub2 was working really great for me, I
just need to be able to either TFTP or NFS boot to 1) ease development
2) provide a firmware recovery mechanism

Migrating to U-Boot seems like overkill.  Do you guys have any other

Hello All,

Forgive me for asking a newb question, but could someone please tell
me how to configure grub2 to do either a TFTP or NFS boot?  I am
assuming this functionality exists in grub2.

I'm working with a 686 processor and a Realtek 8169 PHY.
GRUB2 has no networking support yet.  It is planned, but the current
status is "looking for members":

It supports though PXE so you can load grub2 via PXE and then load files
from a tftp server.
