NFS Install fails with the message "Couldn't mount Directory from Server".
Alt-F3 displays "NFS warning: mount version older than kernel". FTP
install also fails. See ISSUE0000202197.
(1) Boot the system with boot disk after configuring the server with
SmartStart 5.2, RC6
(2) Select NFS Install and follow the directions
NFS and FTP installs are quite common here in the Red Hat test-lab, and we're
quite successful. Are you, by chance, using an NFS-v2 server? Or is it
possible that the hardware you're using is somehow different enough this might
be some configuration/driver issue?
