You might want to ask about this on the xbox-linux mailing list or forum. Booting from the network is a feature that MIGHT be found in open-source linux bioses, but certainly not in the EvoX or X2 series. That said, you would still need a way to get something to your xbox, and seeing it won't boot from the hard disk you might have a hard time doing that.

i think you could use xDSL ("damn small linux" for xbox). it's about 50mb and runs like any other app. you can copy the files (just one folder and two files) over to your box via evox/ftp. if your bios finds/starts the default.xbe you should be good to go (maybe you will have to edit your bios to point to the default.xbe.).
i think, you can also use it as a liveCD.

hope it helps,
