Dear Current Users,
I am attempting to set up a `diskless' bootable floppy. I've tried
to follow the instructions on man diskless(8) etc.
I have rpc.bootparamd running on i386 1.2 Beta in debugging mode. I
have built a i386 diskless kernel from 1.2B sources and installed it on a
floppy and added the bootstap blocks with disklabel. I have rarpd running
on the server.
On booting it gets it's clients address and server address, hostname
fine. On the rcp.bootparamd display it shows a getfile for client and
file root. The returning info is what I put in /etc/rcp.bootparams for
this client. The /etc/exports export the server area, nfsd is up and
running, The server area etc/fstab looks ok (note I did not fine
fstab.nfs which was mentioned in the diskless man pages).
Can someone point me in the right directions as to what this error
means and how I can correct it?
Thanks in advance.
