Hi All,

I have just tested booting linux using nfs on 6 indys. I have the following
results :

The following systems worked. Notice that the ones that worked are all R4600
based CPUs with varying memory, CPU speed , CPU cache and Newport graphics
options. The Indys I couldn't get to boot from a NFS server were all R4400
based systems !
