Hi all,

I previously ask a question about booting my MV3800 using 1.3.2 over 
mopd, rpc.bootparmd, and nfs.

I was told by someone who runs a MV3900 to use mopd and bootp.

I have mopd running and the vax loads the mopfile fine.  But it dies 
at the kernel loading.

Bootfile: mopboot

Trying BOOTP
Using IP address:
myip: (
root addr= path=/
nfs_open: must mount first.
Boot failed: Device not configured

On the server I have mopd running.  I also have dhcpd, and bootpd 
running from inetd.  At the last command the server shows the 
following in the log messages.

Date host mountd[146]: mount request denied from for /

Could someone direct me to a decent bootp/nfs tutorial or faq.  I 
have looked for 3 days and have had little success.  I can't figure 
out why the server is denying the vax from mounting nfs.

Thank you for your time in reading this.  Also thanks in advance.
