Thanks for your reply. It hadn't occurred to me this might just as well be a server problem, so thank you for pointing this out. Will try to find out more soon. slightly off-topic: Using a stripped-down kernel, I have managed to remote boot my machine. However, I can't login because of "Out of memory - killed process login". Executing sulogin results in the same. When I boot init=/bin/sh, everything works fine, except when I try to run 'login' or 'passwd <user>' - it results again in the out of memory message. Can anyone tell me where is the right place to ask such a question (I'm using shadow-4.0)? > > How about a different network card?

Have just compiled the one from gnu inetutils-1.4.2, and the result is the same. About a different card: the only ones I have directly available are Cabletron E21xx cards, for which I haven't created a succesful bootrom(floppy) yet. Will try to get a 3com card for further testing. The server logs only the request and filename: Mar 14 23:45:56 neminis tftpd: in.tftpd: connect from 192.168.10.70 Mar 14 23:45:56 neminis tftpd: tftpd: trying to get file: /tftpboot/vmlinux-i486 tcpdump might reveal more, though I haven't much experience with it.
