Hi Andrew,

Wow, I'm impressed!  Thanks for tracking it down.

Right.  Does the bug affect only fetching the startup script with FTP,
or is it more general host name lookup problem?  If I boot with a "fake"
hostname and then use hostAdd to add a real IP name will nfsMount work
with the real host name?The only reason I might want to use the "real"
host name is to avoid confusion when people look at the nfsMount
commands.

Thanks,
Mark
