is portmap service running?

Although it says "The portmapper manages RPC connections, which are
used by protocols such as NFS and NIS. The portmap server must be
running on machines which act as servers for protocols which make use
of the RPC mechanism." I seem to remember that I was getting RPC
timeouts on client machines as well when I didn't have portmap running
on them.

there are other services related to NFS/RPC easy to spot in 

RedHatMenu > System Settings > Server Settings > Services

the services starting from rpc all mention nfs. but look out for
others as well.
