Hey Anne:

Definitely seems "nfs-common" related issue then, as Wim suggested. Seems
like it is not started.

The following scripts need to start sucessfully:


/etc/init.d/portmap start
/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
/etc/init.d/nfs-common start


Can you send output of "rpcinfo -p" for further troubleshooting?
