Network install - no root partition error
hi, ive been attempting to install mandrake via a network install, everything appears to be configured correctly the nfs server etc etc, but i recieve an error relaiting to partitioning when attempting to do an install.
insert network.img floopy [the syslinux.cfg file has been edited - will post contents if needed.]
recieve linux 'install screen'
askes for network drivers floopy
appears to assign ip and connect to server correctly (assuming it connects due to next steps)
enters and appears to set
keyboard, language etc (i dont have the full list with me as this happens in uni and i am unable to replicate the enviroment at home)
then once reachin the partition section of the 'network install' i recieve:
i feel that i have had to have missed something somewhere and a google of the above error doesnt help me any, the only possible area that i could think of this resulting from is from the auto_inst.cfg file but seeing as this isnt on the boot floopy or anywhere else that i can find im assuming that the file isnt being used so therefor it cannot be due to that file.
oops, no root partition at /usr/bin/perl-install/install_steps.pm line 204
any help would be greatly appreciated as this is driving me nuts.
