Hi,

i hope someone can help me with this...i hv been cracking my head on this for quite sometime now but to no avail..
i hv a kickstart file on a floppy..i boot from it and install packages and everything works fine. in the %post section i am doing an nfs mount of a server..this fails...i get a "mount:RPC error - Network is unreachable" error message. once the server comes up thought, i can mount the drive just fine without making any changes.
i'm attaching my ks.cfg file below...can anyone please tell me what i'm doing wrong?? any help is appreciated.
