    diskless client problem

    Hi! i'm using archlinux, but i followed the gentoo guide for setting up a diskless client. When i boot the client i get the following error

    Root-NFS: Server returned error -93 while mounting /netboot/diskless1
    VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
    Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(2,0)
    I haven't been able to find the error number on google. So i'm not exactly sure what it means. Someone told me something about a protocol not being supported. here is my dhcpd.conf

    # DHCP configuration file for DHCP ISC 3.0
    ddns-update-style none;
    subnet netmask {
      pool {
        max-lease-time 86400;
        default-lease-time 86400;
        deny unknown clients;
      group {
            filename "/pxelinux.0";
            option domain-name-servers;
            option routers;
      host {
           hardware ethernet                00:11:09:ba:0d:90;
           fixed-address          ;
           option host-name                 "";
           option root-path                 "/netboot/diskless1";
    and the file in pxelinux.cfg

    DEFAULT bzImage
    APPEND ip=dhcp root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=
    and finally here is how i started atftpd

    atftpd --daemon --logfile /var/log/atftpd.log --user nobody.nobody /netboot
    if more information is needed i can provide it.
