Description Tammy Fox 2003-09-15 16:56:28 EDT
I installed Taroon on a system, and rsynced / to an NFS server. I setup NFS to
export /diskless/i386/RHEL-3-AS/root and tested it by mounting it with the mount
command. Then, I run r-c-netboot and get to the NFS information page. I enter
/diskless/i386/RHEL-3-AS/root, and it keeps saying I have to enter a directory
with a /boot directory even though I have one.

I finally got desparate and removed the /root from the directory name, and it
worked. This seems wrong since it doesn't have a boot/ subdirectory and since
the path without /root is not even NFS exported.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2003-09-16 16:56:05 EDT
Fixed to allow the entry of either with or without /root/
