Description at-dot-at 2001-04-02 11:55:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.6 [en] (X11; I; SunOS 5.5 sun4m)

using pcmcia.img on laptop with 3-Com pcmcia ethernet card anaconda reports
failure to mount NFS directory. However server (rh7.0 and solaris 8 )
reports mount suceeded.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from pcmcia.img
2.specify ip and netmask for target, no DNS or gateway (fields blank)
3. specify NFS server IP and exported directory name.

Actual Results:  anaconda reports failure to mount directory. Servers
report sucess via
showmount -a, rpc.mountd -v. Anaconda does not allow further progress.
Other console (alt+f3 ?) reports mount.

Expected Results:  NFS source directory should be mounted (it seems to be)
and install proceeds

snoop output from two mount attempts on Solaris8 server is available but
normal for a _sucessful_ NFS mount.
