When you select "nfs" in hpcboot, it tells the kernel to get the root
from NFS.

That checkbox doesn't affect the way the hpcboot acquires the kernel
to boot.  hpcboot can get the kernel from CF, both FAT and UFS
partitions.  It cannot get the kernel via NFS.  OTOH, though it's
little known fact, hpcboot can also get the kernel via http ;)
