Linux as a nfs server doesn't run trouble free, as I'm using the two DS's
as diskless X terminals I haven't bothered yet sorting that out. This
is what I've done to get that far:

o put the base stuff nfs exported.
o prepared a disk and copied everything to it
o modified the necessary files, and copied those to the nfs server

What you can't do on the diskless machine is for example changing
passwords, `ps` reports an error. It runs perfectly as a X terminal. :-)

You already gave the right solution. :-)
