Hi! I cannot seen to find anyone that can answer why I cannot mount /
(root) via NFS on Mandrake 7.0/7.1. I have three 7.0 Machines, one with
a 2.2.16 kernel , one with a recompiled kernel with CONFIG_ROOT_NFS
turned on, one with the stock kernel and a 7.1 with the stock kernel.
None of them let me mount / , I get

(logged in as root)
mount -t nfs musha:/ /mnt/misc
mount: musha:/ failed, reason given by server: Permission denied

I can mount any other dir, for example: (on machine hoffen )

mount  -t nfs musha:/mnt/cdrom /mnt/misc
mount  -t nfs musha:/usr/local /mnt/misc

works fine, exports (on musha) looks like:

/ hoffen(rw,no_root_squash) hope(rw,no_root_squash)
/mnt/cdrom hoffen(ro,no_root_squash) hope(ro,no_root_squash)
/usr/local hoffen(rw,no_root_squash) hope(rw,no_root_squash)

hoffen, hope, musha, and kitty are my machine names

I did everything in the NFS Howto and looked over the NFS man pages and
nowhere do I find a solution. I get the same results on every machine. I
can mount any mount point other than / (root). Thanks!!
