I selected start nfs at boot in yast, but nfs won’t start when i boot. i have to go into yast to start it. What can I do? Also, my previous selection has not been saved in yast. is this another netmanager issue?

What is netmanager?
What do you mean NFS does not start? Are you exporting or importing file
systems? What sort of network device are you using - wired or wireless?
I only export NFS file systems on computers that use a wired connection. Those
are reliably imported at boot time on systems with wired connections using the
Wireless machines controlled by NetworkManager may not have the wireless
connection established until login time. For those, I add the noauto and user
options to the fstab entries, such as
192.168.1.50:/ide1 /ide1 nfs defaults,noauto,user 0 0
With these options, an ordinary user can mount the NFS file system without using
sudo, and they can do it when they need access to those files. You can also set
them up to use automount, but YaST cannot do that for ordinary NFS volumes - you
need to create the configuration files yourself.
ok it was networkmanager. changed to traditional method with ifup, and rebooted. everything is up now. good tip for wireless though. i will be using that too.
