diskless boot question

first I appologize if this is not the right place to post this question.
My question is concerned with using grub to do boot of a diskless
machine over the network.
I have recently posted to Etherboot a network driver for Mellanox
Technologies HCA devices, implementing IP Over Infiniband, and I would
like to know how to integrate it into the recent release of Grub, i.e.
Another thing that I do not quite understand is why should Ehterboot
drivers need to intergrate into grub anyway? After all, the network
driver is already in memory since it was used to fetch nbgrub or pxegrub
images from the network and I would expect grub to use it (the same
pxelinux.0 for example does it).

Please send any comments/info regarding this.
