 They are in the source, like the rest of the netboot stuff.  They just
arn't enabled in the current packages.  Most because it's ugly, and a bit
unsafe(think ISA) to enable all the ethernet drivers & netboot stuff in grub
when it'll be primarily used to boot from a harddrive.  It should be
trivially easy to recompile grub with support for your NIC and (pxe|nb)grub
