The keyword happened to be 'normally'. After some changes it did work

Thanks a lot.


PS:Having set up 'two architecture boot' according to
nfsroot-i386 is set up corretly, though the entries in <HEXIP> file in
tftp are still 'amd64'. Manual change to '486'
in kernel and initrd makes installation flawless. Any idea where did I err?
