Interesting.  I am finding a boatload of bug reports regarding SiS900 
and PXE, covering pretty all kinds of bootloaders and operating systems: 
pxegrub, WinXP, ...

It sounds like Etherboot can be chainloaded and used as a proper PXE 
stack, which is kind of a roundabout way of doing it (it can also be 
flashed into the ROM of course.)

Without actually having access to one of these systems I don't think 
I'll be able to do anything about it.
