Hello,

Just been looking into the problem more.

My Indy and Sparc boxes netboot fine, so server seems ok

My I2 boots an old 2.4.0-test9 kernel fine

But try to boot a new kernel on the I2, get this:

>> bootp():/vmlinux                 
Setting $netaddr to 192.168.0.13 (from server )
Obtaining /vmlinux from server                 
  /                           
[and stops there]

I thought this was the kernel, but I just tried Flo's (lolo) working
I2 kernel and it does exactly the same!!


Server is showing this:
