actaully, this does help lots, as the intention is to have the ELC booting
disk-less. This means I can locate the (noisy) disks in my alpha (also
running potato), which is in the dining room, leaving the ELC in my room, nice
and quiet. It keeps my room warm and cosy too :)

this is the bit that I have never ever seen documented. a boot command for nfs-root.
