Running Linux. After many attempts and much swearing, finally got an
NFS server running on a Mac G4 Powerbook (not my machine & I don't know
OSX from shinola), with /Volumes/Alien shared.

I*run*on*this*Linux*box:
sudo mount 192.168.1.102:/Volumes/Alien /mnt/alien

"mount" shows OK:
192.168.1.102:/Volumes/Alien*on*/mnt/alien*type*nfs*
(rw,addr=192.168.1.102)

Problem is, I can't access /mnt/alien - even as root::
root:/mnt/alien*#*ls*-al
ls: reading directory .: Input/output error

Then I notice
edj:/mnt$ lk
..**.**.**.
drwxr-xr-x***3*root*cdrw*1024*Aug*21*17:59*alien
..**.**.**.*

If I umount, /mnt/alien is properly root:root.

Why's that changing to cdrw group upon mounting, and why can't root
access it?**I*don't*know*if*the*problem's*on*the*Linux*si de*or*the*Mac
side. Network's OK - I can ftp, e.g. Any advice, hints, pointers?
