newbie question about NFS

I am using FreeBSD 6.2.  I am trying to export a directory so that another 
machine can read and write to it.

With an /etc/exports file that says:


I get an empty directory on the client machine.

I know that there are files in the directory.  They show when I list the 
contents on the FreeBSD machine.

If I leave off the (rw), then the contents of the directory are visible.

But the documents are read only.

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks to all for any help.
