Booting a live cd?

Ive tried booting to the most recent ubuntu iso but for some reason when I select it from the boot menu it says somthing about append a correct “root=”. Could there something be something wrong with my /default file? I have my ubuntu iso mouted to /tftpboot/ubuntu/12.10/
append boot=casper netboot=nfs nfsroot=192.168.0.3/tftpboot/ubuntu/12.10/

[CODE]append root=/dev/nfs initrd=/ubuntu/12.10/casper/initrd.lz boot=casper netboot=nfs nfsroot=192.168.0.3:/ubuntu/12.10[/CODE]
Your append line should look like this. Note the “root=/dev/nfs”
you will need to test if you still need your “initrd=” line because it is in the append line.

Shouldn’t nfsroot be set as nsfroot=192.168.0.3:/tftpboot/xxx (with the “:” between the IP & the NFS path)?

Try it without the tftpboot listed in the kernel line, maybe?
I’m just guessing because I’ve never tried booting to the ubuntu live cd, but the structure of my default file doesn’t include the tftpboot folder in the kernel line. I wonder if it’s looking for a file located at /tftpboot/tftpboot/ubuntu instead of /tftpboot/ubuntu because of it.
