PXE remote boot issue with Intel gigabit ET Dual port server adapter


I am trying to verify pxe boot of SLES 11 via Intel gigabit ET Dual port server adapter.

I have setup dhcp server, tftp server, NFS (exported /tftpboot to diskless host with proper permissions) and /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default on a machine. When I try to remote install on a diskless host, it could not find harddisk. I had to manually mount /tftpboot as "/ " via NFS, then installation went fine. At the end, when it asked for reboot, I have changed /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default with the options root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=nfs://<IP>/tftpboot. But diskless throws an error "unable to mount nfs://<IP>/tftpboot". Can you please let me know if I am missing anything in the above setup.

Thanks & Regards,
