CentOS: Diskless client from system-config-netboot doesn't boot.


Hi folks,

I've followed a set of instructions I found on http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...-diskless.html which describes using system-config-netboot to set up PXE booting.

I used a CentOS-4.3 install (custom, all options de-selected, then anaconda-busybox installed after the fact) as a reference/base. I followed the instructions.

When I boot the PXE client, it does the pivot root operation, and finally concludes with:

Code:
SELinux: Disabled at runtime.
SELinux: Unregistering netfilter hooks
...at which point it hangs for ever.

The lack of any information on the web implies that I'm doing something trivially incorrect, can anyone tell me what it is?

Thanks for any hints or pointers you can provide.
