That should be possible. I assume you can install
grub on it somehow and then just copy RTEMS onto
that. But this is always the type of thing that is easy
to describe and the devils in the details of implementing.
Booting via PXE is a known quantity and easy to do.
Booting from hard disks using grub is also.
So it is just a matter of working out the details with

We would have to know the PCI Id to be sure but
i82551 is supported in the libbsdport. I used it
on a Winsystem board myself.
FWIW helping work out these type of details is
what we do using the RTEMS Application Assistance
arrangement. Works well for solving specific issues
