Think your missing a dracut module for that to work have a look at:
I've already installed dracut-network: in fact I can mount nfs root.
Yesterday I also found that the default behaviour for Debian live, when you select
"net" binary image, is provide a tftp
boot directory with pxelinux preconfigured for nfs live root. I would like to do the same
with Fedora :(
Beside Fedora, I would also like to get it working with CentOS and Scientitifc Linux.
Has anybody on the list some more suggestions?
