I've done this for F7 (the NIC is detected by the default e1000, but
fails to run at gigabit speed).
The trick is:
Install the OS, don't do yum update.
Compile the e1000 module.
Unpack the initrd file
Replace the e1000 module
Repack the initrd file again
Use the new initrd file for PXE booting
This works for F7.
