I am currently stuck on a netbook, which isn't great for gaming, and I have all the settings as low as possible, vsync off, etc etc, But I still get some lag, any ways to boost my FPS?

Nope, unsufficient hardware cant perform over their capability's no mater what tweak you apply.

Is it possible to run AA2 in DirectX 8 then?

IIRC its default at DX8, if not, open your "ArmyOps.ini" and locate:
[Engine.Engine]

RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice


Move the semi-colon from RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice to RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice

Save and close.

Running AA in older DirectX versions won't help your pc, theorically it would run even worst as every new DirectX version pointed to make a better use of all the components, therefore making better use of the graphic card.

All of this doesn't matter on a netbook anyway. You could disable lighting, maybe even running without textures, and it will still not run decently enough (note: of course you can not play without lighting and textures online, while multiplaying).
