system boots kernel and try to mount local filesystem.

There I get an error:

/etc/init.d/rcS: line 36: kill: (1) - Operation not permitted.

Cleaning /tmp/etc/init.d/rcS: line 39: /tmp/.clean: Read-only file system
mount: permission denied

And so many messsages about read-only file system.

I've read this http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Diskless-root-NFS-HOWTO-3.html#ss3.2
but don't get a clear idea about what to do.

Is there to mount remote filesystem ? Isn't it mounted with nfs when
kernel boots ?

May be stupid questions, but I'm novice with diskless systems.

Thanks everyone.
