Diskless client with system-config-netboot



Hi all,


I am trying to get a diskless client installation going against a RHEL4 ES
server (with system-config-netbot), and everything has gone fine up to the
point where the client  system must boot. This fails with a kernel panic
saying that init cannot be found.


I am guessing this is because it has failed to mount the NFS
directory  correctly for some reason, but this remains a guess because NFS
doesn't  seem to log anything anywhere. Is there a particular option I
should be switching on to discover what  NFS is or isn't doing? Anyone know
where NFS logs to?

[root server1 pxelinux.cfg]# tail /var/log/messages
