Re: nfs installation over a cable-modem



Hi,

I'm confused.  How do I add "nfsvers=2" to the mount command?  

My server is a RedHat Linux 7.2 computer.  Here's what it's /etc/exports
entry looks like for my kickstart files:
/usr/local/admin/kickstart/dist 131.215.186.0/255.255.255.0(ro)

The same exact laptop that won't install over a cable modem installs
perfectly when I schlep it in to work so that it's on the same subnet.  
Plus, it correctly mounts the ks.cfg file from
server:/usr/local/admin/kickstart/dist/configs so I know that nfs is
partially working.

Thanks,

Cheryl
