*SPAM* NFS boot entry

does it works reasonable fast? When Im trying to boot from NFS and it seems to stop on second splash
image (the one with "Wait while UI is loading" or sth like that). When Im watching transfer on usb0
on my laptop during the boot, at first it looks fine, and after the second splash image appears the
transfer drops to zero or almost zero. After several minutes still nothing, so I have to kill the
phone. Once I have observed some dialog box on neo with squares in place of letters :-? Apparently
it didn't load the fonts yet.
Any  ideas?
