I have some Mac OS X users that seem to have a vanishing file problem. I was
thinking that it might have something to do with Netatalk. How do you import NFS
on OS X?

OS X is BSD Unix with some Jobs Quarks but BSD Unix still. It is all there.

The changes all have to do with the old NetInfo Database that is often used
instead of where you put normal BSD stuff. It is not hard to work out. Docs
are pretty lacking out of the box but the University of OReilly has tons of
stuff. If you can get your hands on any old NeXTStep docs they are really
helpful. Mac OS X is just a NeXT cube underneath.

In my hands exported NFS linux directories mount under the Finder just fine.
