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 192.0.2.15, in /disk4
2. Configured bootp on machine 192.0.2.3 so that it could inform
   my machine that it's address is 192.0.2.2.
3. Rebooted my machine
4. Went to sash.
5 Typed:

scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(0)/vmlinux nfsroot=192.0.2.15:/disk4

So far, so good.

5. The linux kernel booted, and said:

Root-NFS: Got BOOTP answer from 192.0.2.3, my address is 192.0.2.2
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:

        vmlinux-970916-efs

I'm going to try an older one.
