No, but I mounted the cdrom in a directory that was being exported.
/data1 is exported and I mounted the cdrom in /data1/cdrom. Could it
be some network settings I am supplying. It asks for a nameserver, gateway,
etc. This machine used to be the gateway, and so the gateway is currently
unavailable. The server has a hosts file and I have experienced problems with
reverse-mappings before. So if the host requests something via NFS it better
be reverse-mapped somewhere, right? I guess I will have to investigate
