FC10 kernel panic - Stale NFS file handle

A FC10 server hung and had to be power-cycled. I suspect it hung because of an nfs mount timeout.

Now it does not boot. The error is
libc.so.6 not found. Kernel panic. Attempting to kill init.

Booting under rescue:

/lib64/libc.so.6 links to libc-2.8.so

# ls -la libc-2.8.so
ls: cannot access libc-2.8.so: Stale NFS file handle

Is there a way to reboot to a clean state? There must be some NFS cache file.

I also tried to cp rescueCD:/lib64/libc-2.8.so to the old lib64 dir, but get the same "Stale NFS file handle" message.

Can you boot somehow, that you get yum running? To install that missing.so, or to place the file not found.
