Sorry that my question was so basic. On a Friday afternoon
with 15 minutes left in the work day my brain was in 1st. gear.

Thanks to those that replied with helpful suggestions. 

Turns out all I needed to do was to start the nfs client

/etc/rc2.d/S73nfs.client start

and then do my mount using the IP address of the nfs server

mount -F nfs 128.115.#.#/DATA1 /a

and this worked perfectly!!

If you are trying this yourself there may be a need to start the rpc
services which are in /etc/rc2.d/S71rpc.

Thanks all!

My original question is  below

Is it possible when booting cdrom -s

# boot cdrom -s

to mount an NFS partion from another host??

# mount -F nfs hostname:/DATA1 /a

I  tried it and got an RPCbind error.

I know I can mount local partitions on /a but how about
nfs shares from other machines?

Thank You
Dave Martini
