I looked at the script which creates the initrd.img and it just does a
copy of /bin/mount.

- busybox mount is ok
- plain initrd.img /sbin/mount works, provided I copy /sbin/mount.nfs
to initrd.img (found via strace)
so it seems system-config-netboot forgot to copy /sbin/mount.nfs from
master host to initrd.img. is there a bugzilla for this ?


I think /bin/mount has changed somewhere between fc4 and fc6 but
system-config-netboot hasn't been updated to reflect this.

Someone has already created a bugzilla entry:
