No. For booting via PXE, you need a network card that boots via PXE.
Not etherboot, not "something else".

There are flopy disks around trat try to more or less emulate the PXE
protocol with a generic chipset driver plus client extensions. I don't
know if they work.

If you want a reliable solution, please buy a PXE-capable network card.

You can build a different solution, if you like. But the current version
of the builtin knoppix terminal server only supports PXE.
