[PATCH] initial NFS root support.
Here is a patch to the casper script (1.61+debian-2)
Boot with a pxelinux config like this:
append initrd=dr/initrd.gz boot=casper netboot root=/dev/nfs
NB: Need "netboot" to do either CIFS or NFS boot. "root=/dev/nfs"
chooses NFS ommit "root=" should do cifs.
NB: I have only tested the NFS part... however the CIFS part could
never be run as far as I could see in the old code... at leat now it
can be run... someone else can fix that bit!!!
NB: I think all initrd/initramfs that try to do NFSroot should try and
follow the rules laid down on nfsroot.txt in the Linux kernel source
Documentation. This initramfs and casper don't... I will try and find
time to submit patched to fix this!!!
