I know this has been discussed serveral times on the mailing list (I've read
the archives), but somehow the info didn't help me much booting my Indy.

The boot server: A Pentium box running Red Hat 5.2 and kernel 2.2.8
The NFS server: A solaris 2.5.1 box
The kernel image for the Indy: vmlinux-indy-2.2.1-990329
(also tried vmlinux from hardhat, vmlinux-indy-990212 and
vmlinux-indy-initrd-990313)

My boot command:
boot bootp():/vmlinux-indy-2.2.1-990329
nfsroot=193.215.244.135:/prod/martin/hardhat/mipseb

The Indy:

Here's what the kernel says after checking the hard drive partitions:

Then it hangs. Suggestions? Fixes? Comments?

Thanks a lot! :)
