Sun4/260, 80Megs RAM

Sun3/260 Running NetBSD 1.1, 24Megs RAM. On local network

	I upgraded my Sun4/260 to 1.3 this weekend.  Following the upgrade,
my Sun3/260 running NetBSD 1.1 will mount the usual NFS disks, but
accessing even the parent directory of the mount gives 'permission denied'
errors.  This would not be such a problem except I was planning to
upgrade both of them, but the 1.3 is not yet available for sun3.

I have tried a few variations on the NFS mount options including -T and
removing -s,-b (which I normally have).
	I will make my systems available to people trying to solve this
problem if necessary.
	None known.
