[K12OSN] Kernel panic Dell 3c509



Kernel panic. Root-NFS: No NFS server available.

- Dell Optiplex GXM 5133, on-board 3c509b-tpo nic
- K12LTSP v1.0
- bootrom floppy from cat 3c509.lzdsk > /dev/fd0
- tried vmlinuz.3c509.bootp and vmlinuz.all.bootp; same kernel panic
- double checked hostname and ip addresses in /etc/hosts, /etc/exports
- double checked mac address on ws and server conf files
- ws boots W98 and pings server
- 3c905 (pci?) based Dell workstations boot without difficulty from same
server

Reviewed archives re kernel panics and 3c509 nics. Found info re option-128
and -129 with 3c509 isa nics. Would this apply to on-board nics too? Ran
out of time at lab before I could try option-128/9. In case this is not the
solution, any other troubleshooting ideas?
