I've setup a server with DHCP and tftp to serve kernel over the network,
and NFS for mounting the root and /usr filesystems. The client (diskless)
machine boots up fine, and then it starts to run the rc files (this is
freebsd 4.8). There were various problems that I solved, but I can't seem
to crack this one.
The client tries to create the /var directory structure from the
/etc/mtree directory, but comes up with this error:
mtree: line 6: unknown user root
It continues to boot with a few other errors all revolving around having
no directories in /var
Please help - it's driving me nuts!
