Traffic while booting

#include <hallo.h>

Today i have started a sniffer while booting a diskless computer.

From flipping the Power-Switch until the login-Prompt comes up about
12MByte auf Traffic go over the wire. (NFS-Root, Linux 2.2.15pre9,
base was once a SuSe Distribution, now only 11MB are left in

While booting it mounts /usr and /data from the server. While the exports
are mounted about 7MByte of Data go over the wire. Has NFS so much to say?
Or is this something else?

Bis denn
