As discussed in the specification (ThinClientIntegration), yes, we plan to
support etherboot.  However, I don't know very much about it, and don't have
test hardware, so I haven't done anything with it yet.

If someone would send me a tested patch to ltsp-update-kernels, that would
be ideal.  Otherwise, I'll have to get instructions on how to build the
image, and then go back and forth with someone with etherboot ROMs to test.
