Your understanding is correct.
If I chmod my $HOMEDIR to 777, then you can read/write
to it. But, if I export it via /etc/exports (NFS), you can't
mount it unless you're root. Expected behavior, seems
to me, in light of my experience with 'Nixes.
I don't know if the sysctl "vfs.usermount" would apply
in the case of NFS or not; it does for floppies and CDROM's,
I think. You might try it; good luck!
