Oded and Vagrant,
Thank you for all the help and usefull information.
It turned out to be some odd problem with the modules at /lib that were not
upgraded with the new kernel after I apt-get dist-upgrade the old etch
installation. So it had an influence on NFS.
Made a fresh install of lenny and everything ran smoothly.
My best regards and have a great weekend.
