I don't know. I even don't know if the UNDI driver for Etherboot works.

Do you have any experience with programming using PXE or this kind of low-level
programming? If you have and you are lucky, you will be able to finish in two
weeks. Otherwise, it will take more.

For this work, it is necessary to study how GRUB works very precisely (e.g. the
memory layout, CPU mode switching and interrupt handling) and to know how PXE
works by experience (i.e. how buggy a PXE ROM is). So this "bootstrap" part
would   be the most painful for you, if you have little knowledge about these.
