Ok, it built clean, but broke on boot.

What does the full command line look like?


I presume you mean the kernel boot-line, since last post included the 'Running ipconfig'

Ive been banging at the kernel with permutations of the following pxelinux stanza.

LABEL I 2.6.17-rc4-mm1-sk
MENU LABEL ^i. 2.6.17-rc4-mm1-sk
KERNEL vmlinuz-2.6.17-rc4-mm1-sk
APPEND console=ttyS0,115200n81 root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=/nfshost/truck ip= panic=5

I think the problem lies with picking up a decent 'rootpath', since that
part of the output is always empty, for all variations tried so far..

Okay, this is probably a result of specifying the NFS server in the ip= option and the nfsroot not having a server. I will try to debug this and straighten it out.
