strange problems with ping on a 1850

I am trying to fathom a problem with a kickstart script.

If I do a ping -c 5 130.195.20.xxx from the command line it works fine.
Doing same inside a bash script with the exact same syntax often seems
to take the network on the box down.

I am doing a ping to try and trace why nfs mounting is failing, in
effect it is probably being caused by the same thing.

Any ideas please?

I have flashed the bios to A02 and it makes no odds. Kernel is 2.4.27 or
2.4.15 seems to make no odds.

Regards

Steven
