I can mount this nfs mount point from another client, but not from the
jumpstart/sysinstall menu.  Any suggestions?  Another oddity is that I
noticed is when setting up the NIC, it does not get an ip address.  It seems
to have a network issue, the network works on startup with the network/pxe
boot.  It gets its ip, boots to the sysinstall menu.

Has anyone else jumpstarted 6.2 succesfully?
I have successfully jumpstarted 6.0,6.1 and 6.2 with Intel NICs on Dell servers. So it does work. I solved almost all my problems just by turning up logging on DHCP and TFTPd. I also rebuilt pxeboot with the TFTP option[1] rather than NFS, simply because I don't know of a way to get NFS to log, whereas TFTP does, so you can see what files are failing when it all goes wrong. :-)


[1] look in the pxeboot Makefile, and there is a make.conf option to do TFTP instead of the usual NFS.
