Thanks Shawn.  One thing I tried which I thought should have
worked, but did not, is an entry like this in /etc/exports:

/home rod(rw,all_squash,anonuid=500,anongid=500)

However when I mount this from the client I still get a
permission-denied error when trying to cd into my home
directory.  I don't understand this.
