Hi All

Facing some strange problems with Kickstart Installation on Redhat linux
Kickstart installation setup was working fine for the past five months.

After booting from the floppy, it could able to get the IP address from
the DHCP server,but it fails to mount the NFS partition.
It comes out with an error message" Mount: RPC timeout " .

Checked the following daemons Portmapper,nfsd,mountd and rpcinfo.
Executing the command "exportfs" shows the exported partitions too.
Evertyhing seems to work on the nfs server, but when it tries to mount
the nfs partition, it hangs there for some time and comes out
as " Mount : RPC timeout " .

 Please Advice
