hi everyone, I want to serve diskless clients linux (any distribution), and everithing I found leads to netboot. Everithing is fine so far, since I managed quite well to set up the NFS, tftp, and bootp services required to do this, I even compiled the required kernel image including booting over NFS and NFS built in this kernel image...
The question is: what I first want to try is to boot this image using a diskette with grub and this kernel image (having it processed by mknbi, which is a tool included in the netboot package to MaKeNetBootableImages), but the thing I don't know is: how do I tell the kernel to look for its root filesystem on the NFS server?? (considering that the normal grub line looks like kernel=/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda ro)
if anyone did this yet, cuold be of great help, since all the documentation I found is either inclomplete or does not work (or even worse, I do not understand it!!!
