Error it shows is "Starting NFS statd : failed".....dnt knw wat to do? Did I make my problem clear?
No, and please don't use text-speak..it's not pleasant for anyone.
The first question is, how did you shut down SL? Did you just turn the system off? What kind of USB modem, and what did you do to make it work? Did you have any active NFS mounts? If SL was working fine, the obvious question would be, what changed? We need the EXACT error(s) you're getting...and are you able to get past that NFS error? If you wait, what happens?
