RE: NFS server (final?)

I'm running portmap, rpc.mountd and rpc.nfsd as services. I've used
the nfs-server-config script to install the services. The OS is Win2k 
Pro + SP3. Cygwin is stock 1.3.20-1.

On the Linux machine I've added a line for the exported Cygwin directory 
in /etc/fstab like this: /home/ptsekov/laptop-home nfs user   0 0 is my laptop which is running Cygwin :) This line allows
oridnary users to issue the 'mount' command for the specified entry, 
see fstab(5). So, on the linux box, logged in as a normal user, I just 
type 'mount ~/latop-home' and it works :)
