That's a known bug in netboot and it will be fixed in the next version. Until then, you can use the -d option to mknbi-linux as follows: mknbi-linux -d <server-ip>:<root-path> [... other options ...] for example, if your NFS server has address 22.214.171.124 and the root path for the client is /tftpboot/client-root, then use: mknbi-linux -d "126.96.36.199:/tftpboot/client-root" [...other options...] The next netboot version will be able to determine the version of the Linux kernel and adjust the kernel command line parameters accordingly. gero. =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Gero Kuhlmann <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
