If anyone on the list has booted their Jornada from an nfs share on a

Or is there an easier way to do this than with dhcpd?

In my dhcpd.conf, the Jornada-specific bit is:

host jornada {
        hardware ethernet 00:de:ad:be:ef:00;
        option host-name "jornada";
        # next-server;
        option root-path "/export/jornada";

IIRC the "next-server" option is only necessary if you want to get the
Jornada to mount its NFS filesystem from somewhere other than the DHCP

Thanks. Is your kernel also on the server, or do you use a local kernel and nfs root? Do you check nfs in hpcboot, or give it the local kernel and then tell it to mount root over nfs some other way. I'm a little hazy on the procedure here?
