Re: NFS submounts

   With the help of some of our local LUG people, I discovered the problem. 
The problem was that I was using the kernel NFS server.  As I understand it,
the kernel NFS server won't allow what I was trying to do -- period (and
believe me, I tried every way I could think of, e.g. hide/nohide, various
mounting combations, etc.:-).

   Switching to the user-space NFS server cured the problem immediately.
