Question Non-fatal NFS errors on mount in boot CD

I am building a boot CD for use with partimage on my laptop (I have a USB CD-ROM so I found it easier to build it myself). I want to save the images partimage creates to an NFS share on my desktop PC. I can get the system booted from CD to mount the NFS share, but I get the following output:

# mount -t nfs /mnt/nfs
RPC: sendmsg returned error 101
portmap: RPC call returned error 101
RPC: sendmsg returned error 101
portmap: RPC call returned error 101
lockd_up: makesock failed, error=-101
RPC: sendmsg returned error 101
portmap: RPC called returned error 101
# cat /etc/mtab
/proc /proc proc rw 0 0 /mnt/nfs rw,addr= 0 0
# cd /mnt/nfs
# ls
laptop-linux.000 laptop-linux.001 ntfs-dell.img.000 test

I am using BusyBox on the CD, but I am using mount and umount from my Mandrake 9.1 system because of errors I was getting earlier complaining about the kernel and mount versions (kernel is a stripped-down 2.4.22-9mdk).

Now, the way I have the system configured everything is output to the console (like USB disconnect messages, etc.), so maybe this is normal but I just don't see it on my hard disk system?

I copied the nfs-client-utils package from my Mandrake system on my hard disk to this bootdisk. It has the programs rpc.statd and rpc.lockd, which are started at boot time. I am new to using NFS so I am not all that used to its operation.

I am mainly concerned about the integrity of the data given these errors. I can back up to my desktop PC without errors from partimage, but I am concerned that there might be errors in transmission if I don't fix these errors.
