Thanks for the help.

A couple of questions.
1. I have a separate internal hard drive of 1tb which is auto mounted.
How do I add this whole drive to /etc/exports file please? Or should I
create directories on that drive and add them but once again what
would the directory path be please or how would I find it out.
2. Can I push files from the Mac over NFS to the Linux server? Can I
open a pages (Mac word processor) file that is stored on the Linux
server through nfs please?
