is bootstraping win95 using IPX possible?

M$ implemented 3 ways of booting win95: completely over the net in a
diskless machine, completely locally and an intermediate way, where a
minimum is kept locally and the rest is brought from the server. This
last way requires either netbeui or a Novell server. Is it possible to
install IPX support in linux and make win95 use it to complete the
boot, and then start to use the 32-bit net drivers?

If possible, will it work later in M$ network mode, not IPX mode?
