I tested to install the RH 5.2 to a laptop via
NFS over PLIP.
It does not work because, when selecting
install via NFS and then the PLIP device,
the installer does the insmod plip, but then it
tries to activate it as it were a broadcast device
Solution: when selecting PLIP , the installer should
popup a dialog and ask local ipaddr and the remote
pointopoint ipaddr, and then do a nice
ifconfig plip1 LOCALIP pointopoint REMOTEIP and
route add -host REMOTEIP dev plip1
remember: there are many laptops around with NO CDROM
drive nor a NIC, so this installation mode via
PLIP is one of the easiest if you have a 2nd computer.
