With the console i create users etc.

In the section posix user, you have got the option home directory:
I tried using nfs something like this dcsrv1:/nfshome/test02

Nfs server is up and running etc.

On the client I configured auto.misc with the entry:
nfshome  -rw,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 dssrv1:/nfshome

This process is documented here: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/ref-guide/s1-nfs-client-config.html

Basically, if you want home directories in /nfshome, then you need to first put /nfshome in auto.master and refer to the "auto.home" file, which you should then create. That file should contain one line which maps the home directories:

* -fstype=nfs,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nosuid server.example.com:/home/&

Users home directories don't need any weird specs, just put the local path in their home directory field (e.g. "/nfshome/test02"). autofs will take care of the rest.
