for last Friday, i have a strangely probleme with one of oure clients. 
I can power on , the bootprom make the connection to the dhcpserver, the 
client load the pxelinux , it load the kernel and the initrd.img, say ready 
and this was it. It dont uncompress the initrd and the kernel . I can wait a 
long ime and the only that I can do is ctrl-alt-del. It give no error code.

I have more than 50 clients and only this one have a probleme. All the clients 
boot the same kernel and the same image.

I have test the memory of the client with memtest86, all ok. I can boot 
knoppix und the installt windows, all ok. 

Can someone help me or can give a tip where I can search.
