I have the same problem, but for some reason mail sent to LK just
dissappears into a black hole (I receive it fine...)

Could you foward this mail to LK for me?


NOTE: It fails to work in exactly the same way on 2.4.prerelease.

I am able to successfully net-boot (using nfs-root, kernel-bootp, etc)
kernel 2.2.17 with the config file attached. However, if I use that same
config file on 2.2.18, the resulting kernel will not net-boot.
The config file is attached.

The problem seems to be that the kernel never asks for the address via dhcp (or bootp)
after the boot-rom has downloaded and started the kernel.
I do see the kernel discover the ethernet interfaces, but it dies shortly
there-after.

Here is the config:
