Hrm, I saw this too, and I think Chris is fixing it by mounting NFS in stage1
and just keeping it mounted.  This should be fixed in tomorrows rawhide.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-04-10 04:22:29 EDT
Yes that is just what I did, though I was unable to test it.  Should be pretty
straightforward though.
Comment 4 Deepak Bhole 2008-04-10 18:10:18 EDT
Okay, looks like it has been fixed now. I can no longer reproduce it in today's
rawhide (Anaconda I will close the bug once it is set to RESOLVED.

Doh! mistakenly marked it as CLOSED NOT A BUG without realizing :( 

Anyways, I am fine with leaving it this way now that the issue is resolved. Feel
free to re-open and mark resolved if needed for tracking purposes, and I will
close then.
