Dear Beowulf members,<br><br>I am trying to cluster up 4PCs of SUN hardware (Opteron processor) running on CentOS-5. I am trying to do diskless booting. I have configured one machine as the Head node (with OS and other programs) with DHCP and its running TFTP-server. I don't have EPROM writer and planned to use ISOLINUX CD-ROM boot. I have made the bootable CD-ROM with the following files,
<br><br> boot.cat, initrd.img, vmlinuz (from CD#1 fo CentOS-5), isolinux.bin
(syslinux directory-downloaded form its official site), and
pxelinux.cfg (copied from centos wiki).<br><br>But when I boot the client I am getting the following error message,<br><br>"kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block (9,2).<br><br>I could able to guess, this is due to the kernel could not able to mount the root file system which is not in the CD-ROM. But I want the root file system along with other directories to be mounted form the head node. Could anyone guide me to solve this?
