Question Booting opensuse10.2 diskless over pxe - nfs tcp problem?


I'm experimenting booting opensuse10.2 on diskless clients off an opensuse10.2 server. The clients get the initrd and kernel off the server and start booting but I get problems when the client tries to mount the nfsroot, I get kernel panic. It looks like there might be something wrong with the nfs setup on the server, as the clients report that nfs over tcp is not available. I think it is available, is there an easy way of seeing if nfs over tcp works? Also there is nothing in the messages log to suggest anything is wrong, in fact I can't see the client trying to mount the root directory.

The are other nodes booting Debian off this server, they work fine but the first time they try to mount the nfsroot it sometimes timeouts but they try again and are successful.

What might I try to fined the problem?
