How to set up the file system for nfs root.

I've compiles the kernel (v2.0.27) for nfs root, and have
bootp running fine. I'm not sure though what is required for
the file system. This apparently by default lives under
tftpboot. Is it ALL the files that usually live under / ?

If there are any HOWTO's on this please let me know ...

Thanks in advance

Have you read the documentation in the kernel source in
Doucmentation/nfsroot.txt.

I followed it and it was plug and chug.

I put the root in /usr/local/tmp/<ip number>
and booted from loadlin.
