That's not how NFS works.  You need to have the same user ID
(numerical), and that's it.  The local box associates a user name and
password with local users.

i.e. user 500 is use 500 on both boxes (unless you remap user IDs across
NFS).  It doesn't matter whether use 500 is john on one and fred on the
other.  And the passwords aren't compared, either.

If you've set boxes up so that you end up being user 500 on one of them,
but 501 on another, you're different users on both.  You've either got
to do some user ID remapping between boxes through NFS (I've no advice
on how to do that to give you), or you change users on one of the boxes
to match.

(Currently running FC4, in case that's important to the thread)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
