PXE boot server problem with clients root system
I've been playing around with my server, had a few thin clients that I thought I would like to get started.
So I set up a tftpboot dir according to what I figured out, it seems to work. The client connects and boot the kernel, but.. then it stops with an error...
'Please append a correct "root=" boot option'
And I thought I've done that? it seems the thought was very wrong.
This is how my tftpboot/pxeboot.cfg/default looks like:
append ip=dhcp root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=/192.168.1.230:/tftpboot/ ro vga=normal
The problem seems to be the "root=/dev/nfs"
I checked the /dev/ for the client system.. nope nfs wasn't there!!
I go crazy :-)
I am using 3.1.4 kernel ( using that on all my comp right now) and Slackware 13.37 ...
If anyone got a solution I would be very much less stressed :-)
