1.1. Thanks

I would like to express my thanks to the author of the NFS-Root Howto, Andreas Kostyrca (). His Mini-Howto helped me with the first steps in creating a NFS Root Mounted client. My Mini-Howto does not, in any way, try to replace his work, but to enhance it using my experiences in this process.

I would also like to thank Mark Kushinsky () for polishing the english and spelling of this Howto, thus making it much more readable.
