Description of problem:

The example of using an NFS server during a kickstart installation is
not quite complete.  Mounting an NFS share without using the "-o
nolock" option causes severe performance problems during a kickstart
install.  I suggest adding "-o nolock" to the example in the manual -
and maybe mentioning that NFS file locking isn't supported while in
kickstart mode.

After consulting with the Red Hat developer assigned to post-install
scripts, you are correct! The mount binary is changed to '-o nolock'
by default, but would need to be set for the custom post-install

The fix will go live for our next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Thanks so much for filing a bug to make our products better! :-)

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any futher questions or
comments! :-)
