I'm working with a custom board w/ the mcf5484 coldfire (Vs the mcf5485 on the eval board). The things starts to boot and manages to get through the nfs mount process (I see it succesfully mount in my servers log file) but then it goest to start the syslog stuff and starts giving the messages:

nfs: server 137.237.242.42 not responding, still trying
NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out

The nfs not responding only repeats twice but the NETDEV message just goes on forever. I don't get it. I was thinking maybe this is a permissions issue on the server side but my evaluation board works fine and it's permissions are identical. Any help/suggestion would be much appreciated...
