[Disclaimer: I have used etherboot, not netboot] Once you got the kernel to boot over the network there is not much difference between netboot and etherboot so I suggest a read of the latter parts of http://etherboot.sourceforge.net/doc/html/userman.html would be useful. No root filesystem means that the kernel could not mount "/". In a network boot environment this will either come from a ramdisk (setup in initrd) or through NFS. At a guess you have not told the kernel to NFS mount the root filesystem. See /usr/src/linux/Documentation/nfsroot.txt for the kernel command line args you need to add. -- Phil Davis =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Phil Davis <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.
