Ok, so you don't have a UID mismatch ;o)

The relevant lines from /etc/fstab (or equivalent autofs config) from
the client and /etc/exports on the server might be helpful, as would
the permissions as seen (by root if necessary) on the client and the
server of /mnt/home. You might also find in /var/log/messages some
helpful error messages on both client and server - knowing what they
are might help us to help you ;o)
