The answer to the second portion is that you're mounted as a read only file system, so there's no write access. There's an nfs permissions file you may need to edit, /etc/exports/, which controls whether NFS shares the file system as read only, read write, whether root can have root on the file system etc. James _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
