I didn't find something useful against this yet. I have running NIS here, and
have to ftp the kernel to my server. If i use NFS, i get the same problem, and
the box never talks to my server again. So everything hangs, without NIS and
my homedir, it doesn't feel very happy. I only can shut down the machine from
the console, where i'm always logged in as root for this :-)

If you drive diskless, the problem may be extremely big. Maybe you should try
mounting via TCP, not UDP. Just an idea, because i have no problems using
FTP, only NFS, which uses UDP for the transfers.

BTW: Check your GECOS field or mailer configuration, there is "Magnzs" inside.
