Eee Pc, gPXE boot (with Attansic L1 gigabit ethernet adapter)

I would like to use my Eee PC 901 at times as a thin client to an LTSP server. (I am using already other PCs as thin clients).

I wonder how others have configured the Eee PC for PXE boot.

Normally I produce a *.lkrn image at
Unfortunately rom-o-matic does not offer the option to build and image
for the nic found in the Eee PC:

Just found out that no additional software is necessary. The Attansic nic can be configured to do
PXE boot!
When you see the boot splash press Tab and then Shift+F10
After that you also need to set the boot order in the BIOS.

It is now starting to boot from the LTSP server although it does not complete yet successfully.
