Next question: anything odd about the mount point you're trying to
export and mount? NFS can give an inscrutable error like "EACCESS" if
you try to export and mount a directory that includes another mounted
share. I tried to NFS export a loopback mounted ISO image a while back
(ISO on one box but wanted to work with it on another box and didn't
want to make a copy). NFS said "No."
Other than the above, I'm kind of mystified. Sorry.
