I am unable to run NFS, 'talk', etc.
Apparently, RPC Services are not installed properly.  After a good bit of research, I cannot find how these services are envoked.  When I try to run 'talk', I get error messages about "Network Unreachable", etc.   Please Help!

Thanks in Advance ...

try "rpcinfo -p your_host_name" as root.  This will
tell you if portmap and rpc services are installed.

1)with :
  pstree -p
  see if nfsd and mountd are there.
2)all you need for the network start with /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
  and /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
  In rc.inet2 you can check if some lines are commented
  and anyway you would have lines about nfsd,mountd,portmapper
  not commented.
3)i need your files (rc.inet1 and rc.inet2 for give you
  the right files)
4)Maybe the kernel is not up for nfs ?can you check the   configuration and send me the file .config of your linux source   directory.
5)For the talk you don't need the rpc services so you need only   the inetd superserver active (check in point (1) if exist this)
For anything more after this test you can find me at crbild@smc.it // i check everyday my e-mails
