SubjectMounting NFS root FS
Hi guys,

I have been trying to make FC5's kernel do a boot with an NFS root file system. I see
the support is in the kernel(?). I have tried this:

> [root@Server ~]# cat /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/0A0101
> SERIAL 0 9600
> Say
>
> SAY Hello
>
> SAY Trying NFS
> SAY ramdisk_size=10000 debug ip=dhcp initrd=NFS/initrd.gz lang=us apm=power-off console=ttyS0,9600 console=tty0 quiet root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=10.1.1.12:/tftpboot/NFS/Root_FS init=/bin/bash
>
> Default NFS/vmlinuz
>
> append ramdisk_size=10000 debug ip=10.1.1.50 initrd=NFS/initrd.gz lang=us apm=power-off console=ttyS0,9600 console=tty0 quiet root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=10.1.1.12:/tftpboot/NFS/Root_FS init=/bin/bash

I get "mount: could not find file system: '/dev/root'" and then a kernel panic.

I am using the FC5 kernel and the FC5 initrd.gz as you can see above.

> [root@Server ~]# ls -lrt /tftpboot/NFS/
> total 2636
> drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Nov 26 18:41 SAVE
> -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 932077 Nov 26 18:51 initrd.gz
> drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 4096 Nov 26 19:18 Root_FS
> -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1732515 Nov 26 19:37 vmlinuz

I tried to build a new kernel many times, but that process failed.

Am I missing something? Do I need to change linuxrc? Does someone have a simple example
of how to do an NFS Root FS?

Would appreciate any points.

Thanks for your time.
