Done!

Yes right. I'm confused as it's the first time I'm working on that :-)
But think I don't need to tell that from all my queries :-)

Here is what has been done now:

Start of the nfsserver:
******************
lajka3:~ # rcnfsserver status
Checking for kernel based NFS server: unused
lajka3:~ # rcnfsserver start
Starting kernel based NFS server done
lajka3:~ # rcnfsserver status
Checking for kernel based NFS server: running

Modifying of /etc/exports:
************************
lajka3:~ # cd /etc/
lajka3:/etc # nano exports

nfs restarting:
**************
lajka3:/etc # rcnfsserver restart
Shutting down kernel based NFS server done
Starting kernel based NFS server done


The mounting:
**************
lajka3:/etc # mount 192.168.1.9:/media/SU1010_001 /mnt/cdrom
mount: mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist
lajka3:/etc # mount 192.168.1.9:/media/SU1010_001 /mnt/Debian_Inst
mount: mount point /mnt/Debian_Inst does not exist
lajka3:/etc # mount 192.168.1.9:/media/SU1010_001 /media/Debian_Inst
lajka3:/etc # cd /media/SU1010_001/boot/i386/
^^Now it succeded.


mkbootdisk:
************
lajka3:/media/SU1010_001/boot/i386 # perl ./mkbootdisk --32 --partition
/dev/sda /mnt
/mnt: no i386 installation source


Now it is running, but as mentioned its not a FAT system..
***********************************************
lajka3:/media/SU1010_001/boot/i386 # perl ./mkbootdisk --32 --partition
/dev/sda1 /media/Debian_Inst/
disk /dev/sda, partition /dev/sda1
not a FAT file system


And that it's not a FAT system is what we know, cause it's a nfs system.

Is that not what I have to conclude ?

Here is the content of the USB-Sticker:

Is that above to be ok ?.

Then if it is ok, what should the bios on the computer be set to for
booting from an USB-Sticker ?.
