Oooh, do I have to do that in ubuntu to use nfs? Far too complicated for 
the average working user.
Why don't it just work like it does in mandriva or pclinuxos?
If it is going to be that difficult to get nfs networking going, then I 
don't think I will be trying ubuntu/kubuntu at all.
And I thought kubuntu might be worth having. Not if it is as complicated 
as that.
Unfortunately I cut my computing teeth on COBOL and ALGOL   :-)
