  Ur suggestion is acceptable. But whatss troubling
my head is, the kernel boots up fine until the NFS mount.
Had the switch settings been wrong, the serial output
would be slow from early bootup, right ?  But thats
not the case. Why should it be slow after INIT starts
up ?
 Meanwhile, I am also trying the same with different
switch settings.
