I do not have the time to check the links so I apologize if the below
is duplication:

1. If you are using port numbers >1024 for your nfs exports, you have
to add the "insecure" option for OS X to mount an exported directory.

2. I have yet to use 10.6 with nfs but, just in case it defaults to
nfsv4 (or only accepts nfsv4), you have to ensure that the idmapd
domain of the nfs server and client are the same.
