hello, Pete & all list-folk --
yes, this is true. however, as Patrick and i have been discussing offline,
this is *not* the case with Linux. er...actually, it *is* the case with
Linux unless you start mountd with a certain flag. if you do start mountd
with the proper flag, Linux will re-export an imported filesystem! ugh.
i spoke with a comrade, and he stated that this was a hack, inserted into
the Linux mountd code, by a (his words) "rogue programmer". now, as for
the usefullness or logic of this idea...
at any rate, it seems to be native to Linux *only*, so i would not worry
about finding this option anywhere else...yet...
i will post the Linux man page to the group this week. i meant to do so
today, but i seem to be pressed for time. imagine, a sys-admin with no
free time... 8-)
