Also problems with NFS now.

I was just trying to get other partitions to mount on the nodes and now
I can't even get /home to mount when it was mounting ok in the past. 
I've returned the /etc/beowulf/fstab back to what it was:

/dev/hda2       swap            swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hda3       /               ext2    defaults        0 0
none            /proc           proc    defaults        0 0
none            /dev/pts        devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
$MASTER:/home   /home           nfs     defaults        0 0

but this is what I get in the boot log for node 0:

setup_fs: Mounting /dev/hda3 on /rootfs//... (type=ext2;
setup_fs: Checking (type=nfs)...
setup_fs: Mounting on /rootfs//home... (type=nfs;
node_modprobe: installing kernel module: sunrpc
node_modprobe: installing kernel module: lockd
node_modprobe: installing kernel module: nfs
mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Failed to mount on /home.

Now my question is is it trying to mount the directories before nfs is
actually available on the node?
