Actually, you can do it with
boot -f bootp()server:/vmlinux nfsaddrs=my.ip.ad.dr:nfs.ip.ad.dr
It mounts it now (I have the NFS daemon running with debugging on so
that I can watch) but it just stops after it looks at tty[4123 -- in
I'm going to see how the SPARC guys did it; I think it's just a matter
of getting the device entries correct.

Yeah, and that's what I'm using for my root filesystem.
It mounts everything and checks out stuff like /var/log/utmp (!), but
then hangs after it looks at the ttys.
