I had been having problems trying to do a rawhide install via NFS,

an ISO image unless it's via ftp/http?  Actually I had problems doing it
against ftp/http as well (as in, "can't be mounted from the server").
Although I could download all the FC6 ISO's to the same mounted dir
(diff sub dir) and install from them.  So I am confused on what used to
work, doesn't now?

I'm not ruling out NFS issues in the kernel preventing NFS installs, I don't recall having tried that much recently, but I will try today. We haven't changed what we "support" in that aspect, it would be something lower level breaking.

I have had some problems with NFS lately.
Have not had the time to debug it properly, so I have no bugzilla entry.
Seems like a locking problem, so I changed my fstab to mount the NFS-shares "nolock", and that seemed to fix the problem.

This is 2 rawhide clients (both x86_64 and i386) mounting an Fedora 5 server. It started about one week ago, but I don't update and reboot the rawhide-clients daily, so it might have been a few more days since the updated that actually caused it.
