The 2.0.0 network patch kit seems to be a NOTwork patch kit for me...

I installed the patch kit that Alan posted in Message-Id:
<> into the 2.0.0 source
tree on my two machines and built a kernel on each (P100 and '386SX-20).

When I tried booting with the patched kernel I got the following error
messages in the boot sequence on each machine...
ISO9660 Extensions: RRIP_1991A
found on /dev/scd0
Mounting unknown ISO9660 CD-ROM under /cdrom
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
Mounting remote file systems...
Starting daemons: syslogd klogd portmap inetd lpd mountd nfsd

Then when I try to mount the other machine on each local machine with an
NFS mount command of the form

mount start:/ /start

I get a nastygram

mount clntupd_create: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to send

and no access to the remote system...

What might I be doing wrong? It all seemed to work well with 2.0.0 before
I installed Alan's patch. Is there a problem there or did I elide an
essential step? Am I including enough information in this cry for help?
