Re: Problems with NFS install...

Does your kickstart client have more than one ethernet port? Sometimes    
RedHat(or is it Linux) doesn't use the onboard ethernet port by default 
but will use an add-on NIC. Wierd.

Also, if you were able to do a kickstart using a static IP and then try to
do another kickstart on a different server using the same static IP it
will not work for a while because the NFS server will attach the IP to the
MAC address for a while (like 10 minutes).

I would then check the log files on and see if it tells you
anything about why the mount failed.       

Another thing that might give you info is to hit Alt-F3 when the kickstart
fails -- this will probably end with "*mounting nfs path ..." but might
have other info.
