I'm currently working on a project at school where we're creating a

through NFS. Our /etc/exports is very small at the moment. It only


The problem is that FreeBSD tries to remount the flash as read-write.
When I perform some hard resets, the system boots with the message right
after starting mountd:

WARNING: R/W mount of / denied.  Filesystem is not clean - run fsck

Is it possible to teach mountd to leave the root filesystem alone?
