Description of problem:
When I try kickstart install from a RH 6.2 install server with 
kernel-2.2.19-6.2.7 and nfs-utils-0.3.1-0.6.x.1 installed, using 
kickstart floppies of different versions (6.2, 7.0, and 7.1) mount
fails when using the 7.0 version. 
During the post-install part of the 7.1 install, it takes exactly 5 
minutes for mounting to succeed. When I use the nolock mount-option 
in de post-install part, there is no delay.

Solution to the above problems seems:
On the install-server (RH 6.2, kernel-2.2.19-6.2.7, 
nfs-utils-0.3.1-0.6.x.1) I changed the script /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs by 
adding the line

RPCMOUNTOPTS="--no-nfs-version 3"

after the checks for kernelversion and release. With this I forced 
use of NFS version less than 3 in all cases.

So to my opinion NFSv3 is not handled properly by rpc.mountd from 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from a bootnet.img floppy
2. At Boot: type: linux ks=nfs:install-server:/kickstart/<version>/ks.cfg

Actual Results:  Mount failed

Expected Results:  Mount succeeded

I'm sorry to report, this fell over the horizon due to
manpower constraints, closing.
