Description of problem:
When I do a NFS install the bootdisk created in the installproces doesn't work.
It hangs at the point it wants to read/use/uncompress the ramdisk. The kernel
When installing using FTP the bootdisk created works perfectly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Network install using NFS
2.Let installer create bootdisk
3.Boot from bootdisk
Actual Results: The boot hangs at the line :
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
Even after waiting a long time (a couple of hours) the boot didn't continue
Expected Results: The bootproces should have continued
The machine is a IBM x440. The modules that will be present in the initrd will
probably be ips,aic7xxx,bm5700 and ext3/jbd.
When I installed using ftp the bootdisk worked fine.

the x440 only works with Red Hat Linux Advanced Server 2.1
