Knoppix gPXE nfs mount


Knoppix 5.1 cd booted and started Knoppix terminal server.

Remote machine gPXE boot. Gets tftp, dhcp and starts to load knoppix. Gets to penguin, I forget how many more lines and then says.

Trying to mount cd on 192.168.x.x:/cdrom.....Failed

Please enter the nfs diretory path (gives example) and waits.


I know that the cd works with a newer system on PXE. gPXE should work I'd think as it does seem to get both boot files.

Could it be that the gpxe computer has some oddity on bios for the support of cdrom?

Any other ideas on how nfs is failing to be found.

Thanks.

I was sure someone here would have known how to fix this.
