PXE boot fail


I'm attempting to setup a diskless ubuntu/kerrighed cluster based on these two guides

http://www.kerrighed.org/wiki/index....hed_on_NFSROOT
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EasyUbuntuCl...edClusterGuide

and I'm having a problem with it not loading the NIC drivers. At least I think that's what it is. it boots, starts loading the image via tftp, then I get to a point where it locks up and throws this error:
Code:
ipconfig: eth0: SIOGIFINDEX: No such device
ipconfig: no devices to configure
/init: .: line3: can't open /tmp/net-eth0.conf
I've found a few places where others have had problems like here:

but at this point I'm lost... suggestions?

if you can get it working from a hard disk, it might make it easier to find the correct driver.

"i worked it out.

Before i copy the file system to the NFS share in PXE server. i have to install nfsboot and nfsbooed first.
#apt-get install nfsboot nfsbooted

if we have not install these package, the copied kernal and initr file will not support the NFS mount.

that is the root cause the system can not find the root patition when boot from PXE.

we can say this is fixed."
