Well I have liloo machine upgraded to 9.3, same problem as before. What
I don't understand is how when I go into yast, network services, nfs
client and add a new server, put in the server ip address, then try the
select remote file system, it comes up empty and that machine, but on my
machine, it comes up correctly. Same network, server NFS server has *
that can access the /home directory.
