I'm using both 5.0.3 & just tried 5.0.4 and both work. Remember that
you need to compile in the hints into the kernel. I just verified
this netbooting FreeBSD inside vmware.
# uname -a
FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT #1: Sat Dec 29 20:24:00 GMT 2001
192.168.254.1:/data/home/ambrisko/netboot on / (nfs)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local)
Device 512-blocks Used Avail Capacity Type
[NFS swap] 130816 0 130816 0% Interleaved
In my kernel config I have:
#To statically compile in device wiring instead of /boot/device.hints
hints "NETBOOT.hints" #Default places to look for devices.
My NETBOOT.hints is basically a copy of GENERIC.hints.
