I am trying to boot a diskless client and I receive the above error. Some additional information: I have no display and therefore, I have set up linux to use the serial port (ttyS0) as the console. In /dev, I have created a symbolic link console -> /dev/ttyS0. I have NFS Root Filesystem enabled. Below is a complete printout of what appears on my hyperterminal from the moment boot starts.
