Re: Probs with netboot/NFS - SOLVED
Your bit of advice wasn't the only thing I needed to change. I needed
to also change:
* Recompile kernel without cramfs or ramdisk support and include
automounter support, boot with nfs filesystem, and a couple other
options enabled which was pretty important!
* Use a different command for mknbi-linux - "mknbi-linux -x -i kernel -d
kernel -k bzImage -o bootImage.nbi -a
nfsroot=192.168.1.2:/tftpboot/192.168.1.18" (I changed the location
where the files are to be stored to /tftpboot/192.168.1.18)
* A couple others that I can't recall.
Hopefully the above advice will help other people browsing archives :)
Thanks very much for your help again.

Yep... the ip= parameter tells the kernel how to configure the network
device, but you have to repeat the NFS server IP in the nfsroot= parameter;
this ought to work:
auto rw root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=192.168.1.2:/nfsroot ip=...
