Today, I tried to boot Linux on my Indy with an NFS mounted
root. Failed again. Here's what I did:

1. Installed the root tree on machine, in /disk4
2. Configured bootp on machine so that it could inform
   my machine that it's address is
3. Rebooted my machine
4. Went to sash.
5 Typed:

scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(0)/vmlinux nfsroot=

So far, so good.

5. The linux kernel booted, and said:

Root-NFS: Got BOOTP answer from, my address is
Root-NFS: Adding default route failed!
Root-NFS: Unable to contact server ...

Anybody knows why it couldn't add a route ?
I'm using the following kernel:


I'm going to try an older one.
