Add NFS root support.
It is now possible to PXE-boot the Slackware Live Edition. Extract the content of the ISO to (for instance) a new directory called 'slackware-live' below your TFTP server's /tftproot directory and then add lines like this to your pxelinux.cfg/default file: label liveslak kernel slackware-live/boot/generic append initrd=slackware-live/boot/initrd.img load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 rw printk.time=0 kbd=us tz=Europe/Amsterdam locale=us_EN.utf8 nfsroot= hostname=pxelive Two new boot parameters have been added to support a NFS root: * nfsroot => mandatory parameter defines the IP address of the NFS server and the path to the extracted content of Slackware Live Edition. * nic => parameter defining the driver for the network card (optional and usually not needed because UDEV will figure out the driver for you), the interface name (optional), the IP configuration method (static IP or DHCP), and in case of a static IP, the required parameters ipaddress, netmask and an optional gateway. Note that the 'nic' parameter is optional if you have a DHCP server in your LAN: Slackware Live will figure out what the interface name is. Syntax of these parameters: nic=<driver>:<interface>:<dhcp|static>[:ipaddr:netmask[:gateway]] Example use of these parameters: nfsroot= nic=auto:eth0:static: nic=:eth1:static:
