Nov 22 12:54:31 kirin rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from testbox:611 for /kickstart (/kickstart)
Nov 22 12:54:32 kirin rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from testbox:615 for /local/tmp (/local/tmp)

this is the log from the server.  So it sounds like the client mounts the
necessary directories just fine (BTW, under /local/tmp is RedHat/ directory)

Reverse lookup succeeded.  I tried this on two different network and
on the first one the reverse lookup failed - in that case alt+F3 got stuck
at
	getting ready to spawn a shell now

but on the second network where the reverse lookup succeeded, it goes past
the "getting ready to spawn a shell now" message and prints out bus probing
messages, module inserting messages and such...  But alt+F2 does not show
bash prompt, so I guess spawning a shell has failed?
At this point alt+F4 shows the same message regarding nfs server not
responding.  (If it helps, it also says task 37 can't get a request slot).
Any more ideas? :(
If all is to fail, how hard or feasible is it for me to look into
kickstart via ftp?
Thanks
