The mount_nfs is for mounting on FreeBSD.  I am serving from FreeBSD 
and mounting on Linux, so that does not apply.  I read the nfsd man 
page a few time before posting, and just did again, and I see nothing 
in their about nfs versions except that the server listens on the port 
as outlined in thge NFS v3 spec.  Please enlighten me on what I should 
read in the nfsd man page.
