Thanks for all the replies.  Figured it out w/ the help of some responses,
the archives, google, and some trial and error.

My goal was to jumpstart a solaris 10 client using a FC4 (linux) server.  I
followed these instructions...

what's not in the instructions...

You have to create separate boot and install dirs.  Linux nfs doesn't allow
mounting beneath an already mounted dir.  So /etc/bootparams ends up looking
like this...
client_name root=server_name:/jump/sol10_0106_boot
install=jumper:/jump/sol10_0106 boottype=:in

and /etc/exports like this...
/jump/sol10_0106 *(ro,no_root_squash)
/jump/sol10_0106_boot *(ro,no_root_squash)

I couldn't get inetboot taken from solaris 10 to tftp boot so I grabbed a
solaris 9 one and it worked.

I also ran into some nfsv4 issues on the linux server.  The solution was to
set NFS_CLIENT_VERSMAX=3 in /jump/sol10_0106_boot/etc/default/nfs (my boot
dir).  That seemed to do the trick.
