changed local net address nfs is hanging at boot

changed local net address at router, server,client boxs
to, from

one client box(rh9) is hanging bigtime @ "mounting NFS filesystems"
usually this just gives up, and linux boots.

i changed ip after i noticed some large traffic( maybe from a friend. hopefully) at that box.

seems wierd, any ideas ?

fstab is your prob I would bet

If the NFS mounts are configured to mount at boot, you need to edit your fstab to match the changes you made to the host addresses. This is a very common prob.

see /etc/fstab

One addition to that:
If your /etc/fstab mentions the server by name, fix your /etc/hosts file so that the name is translated to the correct ip address.
