Hi all. I'm trying to get zipslack to boot over nfs but I'm having a  
problem. I created a etherboot floppy image for my network card and 
wrote it to a disk. when I boot the system it finds the card and gets 
the ip address from dhcp. but it won't load the kernel over tftp. I have 
tftp running via inetd and it seems to be working. nothing is written to 
/var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages but there is a 'file not found' 
message displayed on the screen of the client machine. I couldnt find 
what file it couldn't locate.
I have everything set up following the messages posted by Greg last 
weekend. does anyone know what could be wrong? or where I can look for 
any errors from tftpd other then the places I've already looked?

Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?
