I have mostly everything working except I'm not sure how to handle /var. If I set R/W on the kernel parameter, everything works as expected.
append initrd=/images/fedora/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic.nfs root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot=10.129.1.113:/admin/linux/fedora/root
However, I don't want that, I want each workstation to have its own
/var. What options do I have? The issue I'm currently facing is that Ubuntu is expecting existing directories inside
/var/lib. I've added a line in my fstab for
/var/lib but since it's not already there, Gnome refuses to boot.
