Description of problem:
When specifying a nfs share to mount it should be in the form <machine>:/<path>.
I've tested it this way using RH7.3 and it works when I included the ":" but
without mount can't be reached. I can include more info if needed, but it
appears to be a typo in the manual and nothing more.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.put iso images on an nfs share
2.reboot a machine with bootnet.img floppy
3.at boot prompt: "boot: linux ks=nfs:boot.redhat.com/export/iso/" doesn't work,
will hang when box tries to mount
Actual Results: computer was able to connect to dhcp server and get ip address.
Networking is setup, I can ping box from other boxes fine, when it tries to
mount NFS Server, it can't reach boot.redhat.com/export/iso/.
Expected Results: computer should have mounted boot.redhat.com:/export/iso fine
and continued with kickstart install process
Thanks. I fixed it in CVS and on the website.
