Re: qube2 debian remote boot

Yes, i configured NFS ( I hope correct) the log shows:
Jan 21 09:22:55 fourty2 rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from
qube:600 for /nfsroot (/nfsroot)
The kernel i use is from the
http://people.debian.org/~pm/mips-cobalt/nfsroot/vmlinux_raq-2800.gz, i
think a special kernel compiled for the cobalt mips machines and tested. I
used the howto from
http://devel.alal.com/pipermail/cobalt-22/2002-July/000298.html. I read the
netbsd howto, but i can not stop the autoboot loader via space key. Do i
have to use a special terminalprogram ? Is it possible that you mail me your
kernel ? Do i have to rename the kernel to vmlinux.gz instead of
vmlinux_raq-2800.gz ? My NFS and DHCP Server is an HP9000/720 with

Best regards
