Description of problem:
Any command that brings down the system(halt, shutdown etc) does not complete 
successfuly on a diskless computer. The /etc/network script shuts down the 
network interface and cannot complete. The result is a lot of error messages 
about failed RPC. In order to escape from this state the computer has to be 
powered down manually.

Actual Results:  A lot of RPC failed error messages appeared. The computer 
never shut down.

diskfull system.
