 1st thing to try: take the space out between and (rw, so that
your first line should read:


 I read on linuxdoc that nfs is really picky about that.

 2nd thing, make sure that when you compiled your kernel, you compiled
with v3 server and client support. v3 is supposed to be much more

 FWIW, I have a dual800 running 2.4.18pre1 serving NFS to a dual 450
running 2.4.17pre2 without any problems.
