Diskless clients - booting from floppy

Hi all,

Am trying to setup boot floppy so that I can boot via DHCP,
and mount the kernel via NFS.

Have compiled a 2.4.18 with 'autoconfigure IP' - DHCP enabled.
The kernel has NO modules.

Took a formated 3.5" disk, and then

dd if=bzImage of=/dev/fd0
mknod /dev/nfs c 0 255
rdev /dev/fd0 /dev/nfs

When I try and boot from this floppy, I get

Uncompressing Linux.... Ok, Booting the kernel

and the machine then hangs there....

Any ideas?
