Hello sunexperts,
                Thanks for the huge reply to my question:
> I have jsut installed a sp10-41 with Solaris2.3. All seemed fine util I tried to mount
> a disk partition from a machine running sunos4.1.2. The error message told me that the
> machine did not have network locking installed.
> WARNING:No network locking on babbage:/homedisk: contact admin to install server change
> nfs mount: mount: /home: Device busy
> Q: Is this a common fault and how do I fix it

The answer is:

                This is fixable using patchid 100075-11, however the first message is only a warning
                and will cause little harm.
                The second message referred to an error in my config where I was using the automounter
                to mount a partion locally when I did not know what I was doing - sorry.
                Many thanks to all who contributed:
