Ha, *this* is for the server side. But try to boot a linux kernel > 2.1.14
with "root=/dev/nfs nfsaddrs=bootp" (or so), it simply does not work. The
kernel tells he sends bootp packets, but you can't see them with tcpdump.
Doing the network setup (with the bootpc program and a script) within the
initrd works.
