this is what i have done:
i have nfs running on rh7.2 sharing /mnt/cdrom, this is my /etc/exports file:
i have tried to mount that directory on the server running nfs ie:my rh7.2 pc, and i have no problems the mount works perfectly.
i am logged in as root on my rh7.2 pc running nfs, the redhat 6.2 cd in the cdrom drive, but when i boot up the remote pc (mybox) with the rh6.2 network boot disk everything goes well i select my network card (intel etherexpress), specify my ip address 192.168.0.2 and then it determines my host name and all.
Next i enter in the address of the nfs server 192.168.0.1 and the location of the Redhat directory: /mnt/cdrom
I hit enter and then it seems to go wrong from there, ie: the machine hangs
so i open up a console on my rh7.2 pc running nfs and do a:
[root@xion root]# showmount -a
All mount points on xion:
and it shows both the mounts, ie: the one created during my test and the remote pc (mybox)
so all seems well up to that point .
p.s when i say the remote pc (mybox) hangs i mean there is just a blue screen with welcome to redhat linux at the top and a flashing cursor in the bottom left hand corner.
remember i am logged in as root on the nfs server during the entire process.
