boot linux2200 from windows boot server
I'm currently trying to boot an IBM Netvista thin client 2200 from a windows boot server. Yes, I know, windows but unfortunately the server is running win 2003 server and the program I want to acces remotely is a VB program.
I managed to boot linux2200 from a CF card but I prefer booting all the clients from the server.
I use Solar Winds TFTP server in windows. The client grabs all the files from the server correctly and starts to boot but than it fails.
this is what I get at the end:
Portmap: server 10.79.1.34 not responding, timed out
Root-NFS: Unable to het nfsd portnumber from server, using default
Mount: server 10.79.1.34 no responding, timed out
Root-NFS: server returned error -5 while mounting \2200
UFS: Unable to mount FS via NFS, trying floppy
UFS: cannot open root device "nfs" on 02:00
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel Panic: UFS unable to mount root fs on 02:00
If I understand this correctly, this linux is configured to boot from al local disk / CF. Is there a way to get this to work from a server?

I think the problem is windows related. Your nfs boot is looking for nfs services which aren't provided by windows.
