I am trying to boot a node into my cluster.  When I boot the node using
etherboot it loads the kernel and then loads the initrd image and then
hangs..  numlock key still works but the system does nothing else at this
point.  I am not sure if this is an issue of a bad initrd image or lack of
correct modules loaded. I have the following modules in my initrd image:

via_rhine
8139too
3c59x

I got a few errors running mkinitrd:


mkinitrd -o /tftpboot/initrd 2.6.12-ssi-686-smp

I am installing openssi on Debian lenny following this howto
http://deb.openssi.org/alpha/openssi-lenny/

I am using the 2.6.12-ssi-686-smp kernel.  My first node has the following
hardware setup:

The node I am trying to network boot has the following hardware setup

This is a 4-cpu machine and has always ran with a 686 kernel in the past so
I'm not convinced its a kernel issue, tho I am no expert.  Any help would be
greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
