NFS not working...

I recently had NFS working successfully for me; I had mounted my new box
(YDL 2.0 with 2.4.15-benh SMP kernel) from my old box (MkLinux) and had
started moving file systems across. During this process I had a crash on the
new system and needed to rebuild the new kernel. It is now up to 2.4.17 and
now NFS does not work. I can mount the new machine from the old, but it
complains the file system is read-only (even though the /etc/exports file
contains the single line: /oldsys (rw,no_root_squash)

So what could have gone wrong? Where should I begin to look?
