NFS question

The only things that come to mind here are to make sure rcp/portmapper is 
running, make sure you have all of the appropriate _enable="YES" messages 
in rc.conf, and to reboot.

That last isn't required, you can -HUP all of the processes involved, but 
this way you see what happens upon reboot too.
