In order for NFS filesharing to work sensibly, the server and client  
need to share the same uid/gid information.  You can manually sync  
the contents of /etc/group and /etc/passwd, but over the long term,  
setting up some form of network directory services (ie, NIS, LDAP/ 
OpenDirectory, etc) will make life much easier...
