Yesss, this works. After netbooting I find myself in the shell. The
included prog's are working. Well, actually I've rearranded my desk a
little bit, and while 'the X-files' are running in the background I
played a little bit ;-)
I was furthermore able to create a directory (/mnt) and
(straightforward) I tried to mount the root-dir from the server. This
works too, but whith some error-messages (RPC sendmsg returned error
code 128). After setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH it was aslo possible to
execute /misc/installinit/init. The following mount-request for /proc
ended the program.
Hope this helps,
