you definitely should not have 2 different nfs shares targeted for the
same mount point (/mnt/home) - that is a problem. Also, it is tricky to
do 'user' mounts because users would necessarily have write permissions.
So I would suggest that as root, you not only fix /etc/fstab on this
computer but you also chmod 777 on /mnt/home so users can deal with it.
But to be honest, /mnt was never intended to be a network mount point.
