Re: Netbooting, Part II
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
This is part of the continuing saga of attempting to netboot one iMac from
another. Actually, I got it to boot, but now I've got problems with mounting
the / directory on the client. (I want to have the client be a diskless
client) I've got both client and server running 2.4.17 and have made sure
that all of the nfs options were on in the kernel before I compiled it. I've
set up my /etc/exports to look like this:
This is different from the example, but the example doesn't say exactly what
the options mean, and I can't tell, even after I looked at the nfs-howto and
the diskless howto, or the nfs manpages.
I do get error messages, and they say that they can't find 02:00 (IIRC, the
iMacs are at a school where I volunteer). This is an improvement over the
00:ff error I was getting before. It just tells me that I should set root= to
something different than what it is...
Can anyone help?
