What is RPC MTAB?

I can get rid of the error by mounting the rpc_pipefs filesystem first.

mount -t rpc_pipefs sunrpc /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs/

Not sure if this is causing my NFS client problems or not. Each client reports 'permission denied' when trying to mount NFS shares.

However I can't get any clients to mount NFS exports from Fedora Core 2 servers. Did you have any luck? Has anybody successfully ran a Fedora Core 2 NFS V3 server?

cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora Core release 1.92 (FC2 Test 3)
