The Client requests to mount
/tftpboot/<IP address of client> as its
/ by NFS from server. You must export this from the server,(maybe symlink to /tftpboot/
client to be safe.)
NFS is a big topic there is a HOWTO and two mini Howto's.
first you need to create a copy of your current system under /tftpboot ken has written two scripts that do all your work, I called them makefirst and makecopy. my first client takes 20-30mb and the copy less. I used du -h to look for large unnecesary files.
the following seem to me to be the critical files here
#/etc/exports /tftpboot/elite elite(rw,no_root_squash) /tftpboot/elite gordon(rw,no_root_squash) /usr *.gundog.net(ro) /home *.gundog.net(rw) /mnt/cdrom (ro) run exportfs -a to reread the exports file after changes /usr/sbin/exportfs --help #/etc/sysconfig/network NETWORKING=yes FORWARD_IPV4="no" HOSTNAME="snoball" <----------- GATEWAYDEV="" GATEWAY="" #/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 IPADDR="192.168.53.1" <----------- BOOTPROTO=none
