Network boot kernels HOWTO?


I am trying to build a small diskless linux computer using BOOTP, TFTP and NFS.

Everything is working now, except for the kernel that is being loaded via TFTP, it freezes after the first three lines wich say who made it.

My Question: do you know a good and easy to understand guide how to build network boot kernels, where to put wich one and so on?
I didnt find anything that doesn't say a sentence and wants the reader to know or guess the remaining stuff.

thanks, Nils Werner

Tried that one.
I've just found some interesting HOWTOs but unfortunately I'm sitting at my (holiday-job) work computer and cant access my SSH Server (ports and persistent connections banned ) to try them
Have to wait till afternoon.
Oh, I just saw that the HOWTOs I've found were listed on www.google.de/linux
Thanks for that!
