Settings up

Get the nfsboot package (the package is available from your favourite linux mirror site in the /pub/Linux/system/Linux-boot directory). It contains a booteprom image for the wd8013 card which can be directly burned in.

There are alternative ways to prepare the PC:

  • if your machine is not quite diskless, then you may use the little DOS program, or
  • the binary floppy image contained in the same package.
If you choose the latter option you must write the image onto a floppy by the dd command.

These images contain a bootp and tftp client. You need to prepare a linux kernel too, which contains the nfs-root option.

  • If you are using the latest stable kernel, linux-1.2.13, then you need to patch the kernel with the patchfile included in the nfsboot package
    Refer to patch(1)
  • If you try to use the latest, but unstable kernel from the linux-1.3.x series, then you have to configure in the nfs-root option.
You may or may not configure block device (floppy or hard disk) support, but you must configure tcp/ip support, wd ethernet card support, nfs filesystem support. Then recompile the kernel as usual.
