   I would like to make the machines in the cluster boot from a remote 
server. The mainboard of the nodes has a giga-ethernet interface 
on-board. Also, each node has a pci fast-ethernet interface that I want 
to use for administration and services (nfs, nis, monitoring, ...).
The only configuration I find in the bios for the PXE is booting from 
the on-board interface.
Does anyone know I way to reconfigure the (Intel) boot agent bypass the 
  onboard interface and boot from the pci interface ?
