Upgrading Linux from NFS Server.

Dear friends,

I am trying to upgrade my network from SuSE Linux 7.3
and 8.0 to SuSE Linux 8.1 simultenously with NFS.

I found the documentation on SuSE Homepage
( and try to implement this upgrading
strategy with single directory.
I've done this steps :

1. Making directory for source :
"mkdir /usr/AUTO
cd /usr/AUTO
mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
cd /media/cdrom

2. I copied all the cd1, cd2, cd3 and cd4 to
"/usr/AUTO" with this command :
cp -av /media/cdrom .

3. I mounted the "/usr/AUTO" as NFS Server with yast2.

But than I have ridiculous problem on client side. I
can not mount it even I configured the NFS client with
YaST2. I get this error message everytime I execute
'rcnfs restart' :
prabusubroto:/localhome/ilham # rcnfs restart
Remove Net File System (NFS)
Importing Net File System (NFS)mount: RPC: Timed out
mount: RPC: Timed out

This is my "/etc/exports" on my server station :
transistor:~ # cat /etc/exports
/home *(rw)
/usr/AUTO/ *(ro)
/sementara/installer/netscape/ *(ro)
and this is my "/etc/fstab" on my client side :
prabu@prabusubroto:/etc> cat fstab
/dev/hda7 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda5 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto
ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto
noauto,user,sync 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 /windows/C vfat noauto,user 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap pri=42 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto
0 0 /home nfs rw 0 0 /sementara/usr/AUTO nfs
ro 0 0
/sementara/installer/netscape nfs ro 0 0

What's wrong my friend ? Where is my fault ?

Please tell me, I am getting exhausted because of this

Thank you very much in advance.
