        Hello Jeff,
        You didn't specify if you set-up NFS for the loader to fetch
it's configuration and the kernel and such.  
        Assuming you have an otherwise working PXE environment:

        I've had problems with Intel card at work.  I'm at home now
and don't remember off-hand what specific model of card or the flash
version.  Depending on what motherboard was used, I would see crashes
and hangs in the loader when configured for tftp (with some), nfs
(with others).  
        However, recently someone on -questions referenced a flash
upgrade available and I found it on the Intel web site.  It fixed all
my problems.
