    I have a Suse 9.3 server running NFS server with two users, afore and

    >From my client, also Suse 9.3, running NFS Client, I see the shared
    directories afore & lilo. File ownership is as it should be, afore for
    afore directory and lilo for lilo directory.

    I Lilo's machine is running Suse 9.2. First of all, when I setup the NFS
    client in Yast and try to select for the file system, it cannot find
    anything. I enter the /home directory same as on my Suse 9.3 machine.
    When I finish, it takes a long time for Yast to start the services

    I check the mount point, and the two directories are there, but afore as
    ownership of lilo and lilo folder has ownership of 2002!

    So, why does the select remote filesystem not work in 9.2 and work in
    9.3 and why to the ownerships show up different on the two client

    Server is set to allow all hosts and the firewalls turned off on all
    machines for test purposes.
