NFS and no_root_squash


I am using a Acorn RiscPC running Debian Linux. Now it shall also be a NFS
server for my new yet diskless SGI Indy (The root filesystem for the Indy will
be on the Acorn). That nearly works, just one problem: I need root access for
the client on the NFS partition, and I understood the man pages for "exports"
that the option "no_root_squash" would enable this. But it just does not change
anything, root still gets mapped to user nobody.

Does anyone know what the problem is, or a better place to ask this question?
Thank you very much!
