we are such gluttons for punishment, aren't we?
here is something, hope it helps.
substitute 'hard disk' for 'network'. i got this off www.ibm.com in the support section. hurry and get all the bios updates and download they have there because as you know they sold the pc business to a chinese company so who knows how long this info will be easily available

How to set your system's BIOS to boot from the network:
1. Turn on the computer and watch the screen for the IBM logo to come on.
2. At this point press F1 to go to Configuration/Setup .
3. In the Configuration/Setup please select Startup from the menu.
4. Next select Startup Sequence at the top.
5. Please set the Primary Boot to be Network , 2nd to be Diskette , 3rd to CD-ROM (if an option), 4th to Hard Disk .
6. The bottom of this section is the Automatic Startup , please enable this and set to the same parameters as above.
7. You can now press ESC to exit to the Main Configuration menu.
8. Exit by choosing Save and Exit from the menu
