Live-Helper PXE/TFTP server DebianLive error

After talking with the guys on #Debian-Live I did find out what needs to be done.
Mainly, you need to include your filesystem.squashfs file in config/binary_local-includes.  I then have my build script write out a new EXPORTS file mapping to "/live/image/debian-live"...on boot up of my LivePXE/TFP/NFS image, I have a script which runs to configure the PXE/TFTP server.  I have added a line to the ".bash_profile" file stating:  sudo /usr/bin/myscript.sh, this script asks for IP information for the server sets a static IP address and then writes a proper menu.cfg for the TFTPBoot server.
Thanks all...

Stephen, the aufs mail list about half a year ago suggested that the
fsid option was needed for NFS export. For PelicanHPC I did a lot of
trial and error to get it to work, and I have forgotten the details
now that it has been working for a while.
Cheers, Michael
