Did you know that nfs mount requires accurate time?
This brings a couple of suggestions to mind. First, Loic, is there
room on the install disks for hwclock about 32K I think. I'm gonna
suggest to the d-boot list that we add an optional 'set time' step to
the install procedure for the sake of enabling nfs installs. Also, it
would be keen if this time-set could be committed to CMOS RAM. (Is
that what the UDBs have?)
Also, it seems like it would be helpful to add a note to the README in
the disks-alpha directory about nfs installs requiring accurate time.
Note that the ARC time is not the same as is expected by hwclock. I
originally set the clock with ARC and found that time was in the year
1930 after booted. I recall that there used to be a time program that
compreheded ARC time.
