Never mind, with some searching, got it working for any stock Debian
kernel-image package, with devfs, with the network driver as a module. 
There's no need to compile a kernel any more to boot nfs-root, and it
works well with the diskless package.

I'll post details later.  Not tested with 2.6.

Thanks for the help,
