the end of each section, you'll be able to change the selections you've

NFSv4 line was already there in /etc/.sysIDtool.state but not in sysidcfg file i added it in sysidcfg and changed the term to SUN which seems do the trick but not sure which one did .. any wayz thanx to both of you for the info Smilie
