- Activate "IP Auto Configuration" in "Networking Options"
- Build NFS directly into your kernel; there, also activate NFS-Root
- "root=/dev/nfs" as one command option when booting the kernel (this
is the easyest method). Then, the client mounts /tftpboot/<IP-Addr>
from the server which did the bootp reply. Otoh, you could
configure your bootp server to provide a different boot server
or boot path.
fdisk and cp (btw, you should better use tar in a pipe for that...)
should be no problem...
