I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on a client which I'm trying to get to boot off a server running 10.10. nfs seems to work fine on the server. If I boot the server off its internal disk, I can mount filesystems on the server. My /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default file looks like this:

LABEL linux

KERNEL vmlinuz-2.6.32-24-generic

APPEND root=/dev/nfs initrd=initrd.img-2.6.32-24-generic nfsroot=

fsroot ip=dhcp rw

When the cleint tries boot from the server, it cannot find /dev/nfs

the_zork, this sounds like it might be worthy of a bug report. Can you add the exact error message you're getting? You do seem to be doing it "right" – SpamapS Aug 5 '11 at 16:38
