Hi again, Thomas

Yes, that's the thread I meant - I am bviking at Nekochan (I suppose
we obsolete MIPS hardware geeks are a pretty small community!)

I assume you've already found this old post (to this list actually):

The prom settings quoted as working there are as follows:
setenv SystemPartition bootp():
setenv OSLoader linux.pongo
setenv OSLoadPartition /dev/nfs
setenv OSLoadOptions ip=bootp

(I assume "linux.pongo" is kernelimage.hostname but not 100% sure on that)

Let me know how you get on!
