RE: Latest rev of NFS server

"Oh, Bother," said Pooh.  I'll try to resolve this - it's working
on my system, so I may just have transposed some numbers :-/

	Unfortunately this doesn't work. The daemons (nfsd,mountd) complain, that
	a user with uid different from 18 are allowed to write to /etc/exports.
	So the permissions of /etc/exports should be 644 to start the new version
	of the daemon.
	It seems to me that setting uid=544 and gid=18 fit better. If you think
	about it, the SYSTEM user needs only to have read access to /etc/exports,
	but the Administrators need to have also write access so they can modify
	the file.
