Yes....I'm trying to export /mytest from my SME server and mount it on
another RedHat server at the address

On the server it shows that it's exporting the line from above only in
name format  
/mytest 	pc-00234.vcs.u52.k12.me.us

On the client NFS shows only the exports being made from that client, but
nothing from the SME server
showmount -a   didn't yield anything either

nothing in the log entries.....(it'd be nice if I could find something
then I might be able to find out why I'm being denied)

I changed the numbers to

Nope.....I'm currently using a RedHat box (the one I'm exporting too....as
an experiment) as a Samba/LDAP server  (see my how-to here  
http://web.vcs.u52.k12.me.us/linux )  What I'm trying to do is see if I
can do something similar with an SME box....if I can...then WOW!  It will
simplify things a lot for many folks in many installations.  I just need
to get this NFS thing mounted and then I can test my theory.
