How to make universal Etherboot disk

Ok, I've given up on a single-floppy Linux distro, so once again for my youth pastor's LAN party:
I've looked on the LTSP docs, and it seems like an Etherboot bootdisk is the way to go for temporary terminals. Does the etherboot-pci:all-pci-drivers NIC/ROM type work as it seems to imply and work for any PCI network card supported? Or am I just dreaming? If not (or so...), is there any way to make a universal floppy for netboot? Or does anyone else have a suggestion? Once again, I have several loaned computers which cannot be modified and one fairly powerful server for LTSP. They all need to boot from the server and run as terminals. I need to find a way to have them all netboot without prior configuration.
