howto debug a nfs.error

Hi all,

I want to get my Alpha diskless (which seems to be a hard job ;-).

My kernel boots and nfs starts loading. After a short time, I get

  "NFS: notice message: result =-51" .

If I specify "init=/bin/sh", I get a working shell and no errors.

How can I trace this error ? What does this error mean ?

(As this error never appeared when using nfs-volumes from a disk-booted
 system, i post this to this list .. )
