Is it just me or is it damn near impossible to find a PCI gigabit NIC that has a boot ROM ?

Im looking for one so I can use it in older machines to use with our deployment server to speed things up a bit.

Anyone know where to find such a beast ?

I wouldn't have thought them that rare. I may have one you can have. I'll check tomorrow if it has PXE

Intel Server adapters have PXE boot roms these adapters are around the $100 mark though.

Be careful though as the intel desktop adapters don't have PXE roms.

Otherwise
An Edimax card and one of these will do the trick.
