That tells them to re-read the configuration files.

i have had nothing but trouble with Linux and NFS.  i have yet to figure out
a way to get it to re-read /etc/exports without a reboot.  doesn't matter
what amount of process killing and restarting i do, it just refused to re-read
the exports file.  just something to keep in mind if you need to change anything
around again (i've also messed with booting linux off a server with the NFS_root
option and have had nothing but trouble with that as well) 

i guess my point is: Linux is not the ideal OS to run an NFS server on.
