  No. Instead, you should add a command (e.g. "nbi") to load Network
Boot Images. I don't think that would be difficult, because you just
need to load a NBI to upper memory, analyze the header, relocate the
image, and chainload the bootstrap code. That is very similar to what
the command chainloader does.
