Hi people, wonder if you could help me on this:
i have two redhat 7.1 machine, one trying to boot off the other
through etherboot. Everythign goes fine, the client boots, retreat the
kernel off the server through tftp, and starting the kernel. Then it
stopped with error messages:
VFS: Cannot open root device "nfs" or 00:ff
please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic:VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 00:ff
Where do I append a "root=" option? is it a dhcp problem? in
/etc/dhcpd.conf, i did put in
option root-path "/boothome";
along with the other options. also, when tagging the kernel image, i
also have rootdir option:
mknbi-linux zImage --output=kernel --rootdir=/boothome
nfs export is correct, i have no idea where i did wrong.
thanks in advance.
