Does anyone know if it is possible to modify the Unix Kernel
to cut down on the initial timeout value for the mount
command ? We are using Sun OS 4.1.2. We are mounting filesystems
in the rc.local from remote workstations but if one of those
systems is down or out for service when the system boots
it hangs for about 2 1/2 minutes before it sends it to the background.
I would like to cut down on this initial timeout factor to a minute
or less. It does not seem possible to configure the initial
timeout value using the options to mount.
