Hi, Michael !


2) do you see your nfs mount if you go to another virtual terminal? 
(<ALT>-F2)

Yes.

3) what is the output of "ls -l /tftpboot/pxe/dell_5.2/dsa/" on your
 tftp server?

tftpboot/pxe $ ls -lt  dell_5.2

4) What is the output of (iirc) "ls -l /mnt/cd" on the system that is
pxe booted? (from memory, i believe that is where it mounted the nfs
path)

yep, there's the mount-path ...


> 1) any output from "dmesg"?

I will send you the "dmesg"-output tomorrow,
i'm not in the computer-center anymore 

Thanks&Cheers,
