# Hello,
# I need to build a number of cheap, low performance floppy boot systems for a
# production testing environment.
# I want the machines to boot Linux or FreeBSD from floppy and then use NFS to
# grab the latest test software from the server.
# Has anybody run Pico-BSD as an NFS client ?

Yes, as a matter of fact, I did all sorts of fun stuff with it.. things like
running XFree86 with KDE and windowmaker and Mozilla, all over NFS.. rather
trivial to get working, basically, just get a network connection and 
"mount_nfs server:path /mountpoint"
