    Ehrm, did you really read my mail? Most people told me something like
    "recursive exports are not supported" (actually, they are and they work),
    and it seems nobody really read what I wrote :(

    My problem is that autofs doesn't work. Example:

    / reiserfs
    /fs autofs
    /fs/big ext2

    When I exportfs /, /fs AND /fs/big then I can mount /fs on another box,
    but it is always empty, even if something (e.g. /fs/big) is mounted and
    can be accessed fine the whole time. Automounting doesn't work, either, of

    Another (less grave) problem is that exportfs (and/or rpc.nfsd) require
    network access and access to the volume, so they a) mount all automounted
    directories (VERY expensive) and require network access (making all
    clients NOT survive a reboot).
