"At present, NFS (Network File Service) connections are
primarily one way. The Public Beta can easily mount other Unix NFS
shares, but sharing Public Beta drives is a bit trickier. This is
primarily due to unresolved issues with NFS and HFS+, Mac OS X's
default file system. Mac OS X also supports Universal File System
(UFS), the standard Unix file system, which lets you avoid NFS
issues, but with a trade-off because you lose the ability to run
the Classic environment."
"My NFS procedure is relatively simple. You run NetInfo Manager
and unlock it. To unlock it, you must authenticate as root, with
root's password. Considering that you are getting the "keys to the
kingdom"--letting a novice or malicious user wreak havoc--this is a
sensible precaution. Once in NetInfo, select the /mounts directory,
which should be empty. Then create the following properties and
values, one for each mount..."
"This procedure outlined above works well on Sun
Solaris boxes, but I have not yet tested it with Linux or SGI
shares. It should work, although there do tend to be issues with
the way Linux and SGI approach NFS. They aren't insurmountable, but
beware of them."
