nfsroot boot img?


i just tried to get slink to work on a diskless sparc2.

got the base install done, then tried to re-boot w/

>b net linux nfsroot=

and the same tftpboot.img found in disks-sparc (that i used to start
the install w/)

it boots, rarp's, connects to the nfs server (i see the connection in
the log file of the server), then comes back w/ an nfs error -22

and says something about not being able to get the inode for the root
partition, then it waits for me to put a floppy in the drive. 

any ideas?

i'm assuming that since it printed out some messages that start w/
NFS-Root that the tftpboot image is configured to do that..


- would it make any sense to use the vmlinux that comes w/ slink as
the tftpboot image? i guess i could start teh install process over and
download elftoaout to convert it...
