You can't export regular files, even under SunOS. You must export the
directory in which they live, and reference that.
Typically I have an /export directory, and paths for diskless boxes look
/export/<machine> The root directory for <machine>
/export/<machine>/swap A file on which swapping happens
And they are exported thus:
/export/<machine> -alldirs -maproot=0:10 <machine>
Or, under SunOS:
