When I KickStart a new workstation, it mounts its ks.cfg off
of an NFS server.  Then, after the kickstart is done, the
new workstation reboots and everything -seems- fine.

Little did I know until my NFS server started to fail that
there were lingering mounts listed in /var/lib/nfs/rmtab.

BOTH the kickstart config mount and the redhat mount (for
the install) are lingering now in the xtab =and= rmtab files
on my NFS server.

Mmmm, bugalicious.
