this is bogus ...
a machine should NOT re-export an imported resouce
where HomeServer is the real machine with /home on it
/home 192.168.11.22 (rw,no_root_squash)
if you do NOT want people to write,
it'd probably be a good idea to remove

you should NOT mount a machine that mounts another machineB
that mounts yet another daisy chained machineC
PC:# mount HomeServer:/home /home
even better, use automounter, but after the manual mounts works
specifying "-o rw" is worthless and pointless as the PC does not
control the remote rw permissions on HomeServer:/home
specifying "-t nfs" is redundant

yoour "denied" probably is correct ....
since foo:/mnt/sda1/home is not a local resourse
that is obviously "ro" from where-ever /mnt/sda1/home
came from on machine foo
- i'm assuming most PCs mount a local resource as /home
and not under /mnt/sda1/home
PC:# touch /home/anything
PC:anyUser> touch /home/somethingElse.txt
