/etc/exports looks that way :

/usr/SGILinux   192.168.1.2 (no_root_squash, rw)

And this is what dir /usr/SGILinux contains:
[SU-root@sniper:/usr/SGILinux]# ls
COPYING    RedHat     doc        lib        modules    usr
CREDITS    TRANS.TBL  dosutils   linuxrc    proc       var
PGP_KEY    bin        etc        misc       sbin       vmlinux
README     dev        images     mnt        tmp
[SU-root@sniper:/usr/SGILinux]#


I dunno, it prolly wants to run linuxrc which is simb. linked to
sbin/initrd, but why doesnt it work ?

Thanks in advance, Later.
