Hi. I'm quite new in Linux under-the-hood. I'm trying to net-boot a
tablet Pc with no CD and FD. I successfully installed and configured
DHCP and TFTP.
I wrote a /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default config file as follows:
> label linux_test
> kernel vmlinuz
> append root=initrd
but it seems to ignore the two directives "kernel" and "append" as it
says that no file named "linux" was found and prompts "boot:".
If I keyboard-input "vmlinuz" the loading goes on, it seems to load a
kernel image but then it hangs claiming for a root device.
VFS:Cannot open root device "" or 08:05
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:05
