Serves me right for asking a negative question. I presume this meand Yes, a reiserfs can be nfs-remote-mounted.

When I try to mount topoi:/reiseroffsite onto /reiseroffsite on lovesong, I get
ug 3 17:04:31 topoi -- MARK --
Aug 3 17:24:27 topoi rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from lovesong:89\
9 for /reiseroffsite (/reiseroffsite)
Aug 3 17:24:27 topoi rpc.mountd: getfh failed: Operation not permitted
Nothins shows up in the log on lovesong.
But if (on topoi) I first umount /reiseroffsite, so that topoi:/reiseroffset
is an ordinary directory instead of a mounted reiser file system, and
then I mount topoi:/reiseroffsite on /reiseroffsite on lovesong, it
mounts with the following message. But of course I am not mounting
the remote reiser file system if I do this.
Aug 3 17:26:02 topoi rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from lovesong:93\
5 for /reiseroffsite (/reiseroffsite)
No complaint about getfh failing. What is gatfh, anyway?
This suggests strongly that it is topoi's mounted reiser file system that
blocks things, since when it is not mounted on topoi, there is no problem.
And here is are the relevant lines from /etc/fstab. /home2 is an ext2
file system that can be properly nfs-exported. /reiseroffsite, however,
/dev/hdb11 /home2 ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc1 /reiseroffsite reiserfs noauto,user 0 0
Is it perhaps that user-mountable volumes cannot be nfs-ported?
It doesn't help if I mount them as root? I cold have sworn
I had done that regularly a few months age with another
