What a coincidence: I started out with an RS6K w/ 4.3! I wanted to set up a low TCO network with and RS6K running NetVista thin clients. I have had absolutely no luck whatsoever. Now I'm trying to set up the thin clients to boot from an Intel-based PC first, then copy the config over to the PowerPC-based RS6K.
My SuSE 7.1 PPC nfs worked fine: this SuSE 7.3 is giving me troubles with auto-starting nfs. RedHat has a nice tool to select which apps will run on boot-up, but SuSE does not seem to.
