Hi, I am trying to perform a netboot install of FreeBSD 6 to a Thinkpad X40 laptop from linux on my desktop. I've followed what guides I can but the info is either for older versions of FreeBSD (the CD structure has changed?) or assumes an existing FreeBSD install to work from (for dissecting floppy images etc).
I have downloaded the i386 bootonly iso and I have followed portions of several guides which has got me as far as tftp serving the pxeboot. I assume the dhcp and tftp parts are working ok as the laptop gets hold of pxeboot fine but then fails to load the kernel. I have tried nfs serving the boot directory of the cd and the kernel directory within that without any luck, is the kernel passed by tftp or nfs? I have tried tailing var/log/daemons but the failure to load kernel message on the laptop is the only useful indicator I get. Any help to get me further along appreciated, Chris _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
