You are right! That fixed it. There was already a "w" for the user 
"SYSTEM" but not on group and other. Guess that's what it needs. This 
fact should definitely be added to the readme or changed in the default 
install. I changed it on all three nfs related log files for good measure.

I also noticed that nfs-server-config script did not work quite right 
the second time you ran it. It would not reload the daemons but complain 
they were already installed. I fixed that my rearranging the order of 
things. Also, it always complained that your mounts were not global even 
when they are. I also fixed that. Should I send a patch to someone or 
just send my fixed file to this list?

Thanks for the help.
