I honestly stated that poorly. My box in general was having stability
problems that ended up being bad RAM, I had given up on net boot during my
struggles with that before I realized it was ram. When I replaced the RAM
and CPU, I already had a 10gig drive in the box that I'd actually installed
with Jarod Flavored FC1 using a separate machine. I just never went back to
trying netboot again.

My board actually has a full PXE client in it's onboard lan. What are you
using on the NFS server as an OS? I tried to use MiniMyth but I'm worried
it's not complete enough. I actually have a full copy of FC1/Jarod in my
nfsroot as well, Somewhere in between is probably better.
