I know of the following cards supported by the card vendors:
3com 3c9xx
Intel Pro/100 series
IBM Token-Ring PCI 2

Maybe the Pro/1000F is also supported, but the rom was a) disabled or
b) not flashed. Look around at Intel's web site for a flash rom.
I found: 
The Pro/1000 F is not supported (no rom on the card!), but Pro/1000 T
Desktop, Pro/1000 XT Server and Pro/1000 XF Server work.

BTW: For many cards with a rom socket a pxe rom is available, have
a look at e.g. www.bootix.com.
