NFS Root - I am further ahead

finally, all I had to do is to had an entry into /etc/hosts
so that mountd's authentication pass.

Now, on the serial console, I see that the root system is
mounted via NFS and that some memory is freed but then the
systerm hangs there. I did some tcpdump while the board is
booting and I found that:

/sbin/init gets loaded
/lib/ -> gets also loaded

but this all gets loaded, even if /sbin/init needs
and (as indicated by ldd). Is it normal that theses
2 libraries does not get loaded immediately after If it is,
idea why the system hangs?
