(O.k., the docs need an update soon). Untar root.tar.gz on your
nfs-server and export it to your indy. Setup bootp to fetch the
kernel(the file r4k-ip22/linux) and to use untarred root.tar.gz as
nfsroot. bootp the kernel with:
 bootp(): ip=auto

This kind of limitation can lead administrators to do irrational things,
      like install Windows. Clearly a fix was required. (lwn.net)
