Getting NFS to work is generally very easy on Debian. Let's try the standard
checks first:

- Kernel NFS support? Check using 

		grep NFS /boot/config-2.*

	You will see output like:


	if you have NFS support in any installed packaged kernels. The first line
	is for NFS client support, the second for NFS server support. The 'm'
	indicates that the drivers are modules. Make sure that the kernel you are
	running matches the config file. If you compiled your oenw kernel and did
	not use make-kpkg then you may not have a /boot/config* file.

- Proper packages installed? You need either nfs-common and nfs-kernel-server
  or nfs-user-server.

- Clients allowed to connect by /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny?
