Question NFS not registered??

Hello all...

When I boot up into Mandrake 8.2, it checks all the servers and what not and everything says [ OK ] until I get to this line:

mounting NFS filesystem: mount: RPC: Program not registered [ FAILED ].

It does go right by this and boot up fine. Nothing seems to be affected by it. What exactlly is NFS and how can I fix this error??

RPC = Remote Procedure Call
Protocol that one program can use to request from another system in the network without needing to understand network details.

NFS = Network File System
Client-Server application that enables you to view and store, update files on a remote system as though they were on your own.

Either disable NFS at startup and check out the howto here for NFS if you want to know more about it:
