Sorry no. It would require a huge ammount ofcode and open up a lot of potential holes. You'd have to install network drivers etc, and what about wireless networks, hotel sign in with a browser etc?
Well, a network feature at the boot level would mean network driver availability at PXE level (to be provisioned in the server BOOTP); then the server to manage TFTP to pass on the information back to the client; something like a mini RIS authentication... (Remote Installation Service).
If you have a VPN solution in your company, then a client synchronization can also be initiated after you login to the network. Synchs are extremely fast and not at all network hungry.
