Booting Kernel Problems on Indy and indigo2


I'm having trouble installing Linux on both an Indigo2 and an Indy. 
I've set up a DHCP server and a NFS server (in fact both running on a
OpenBSD Box)
Downloaded a root filesystem, and a kernel (in fact quite a few kernels)

I boot the SGI (doesn't matter which one) and unset the netaddr, then do
something like the following

boot -f bootp()thekernel init=/bin/bash nfsroot=

Now in both cases it seems to download the kernel okay, then just hangs and
I have to reboot.

Any ideas? Its kind driving me mad. 
Do I need to supply any more info?

I know I managed to get the kernel to boot once (a while ago after an all
night session but not sure what the difference was) 
but then it couldn't find the NSF-Root. I'm obviously missing something
fundamental :+)

Cheers in advance
