Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.

Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.

Hi all,

After installing suse 8.1 I can't get it to boot.  Grub using this:

root=/dev/rd/c0d0p3 apic VGA=788

And gives  a "Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up." message.  I've
only installed suse once before on a different machine.  This one is a dual
p3/600 a  Mylex DAC1100 raid controller.  I can boot using rescue, mount the
filesystems, but don't have a clue why it wants to boot NFS?  fstab and some
of the boot output are below.  I'm trying to find what's causing it but
don't have much linux experience.  All the fs are reiser, 5gb, except  /boot
is ext3, 300mb.  swap is 1.5GB

Pointers, Fine Manuals etc would be appreciated!
