 Mac OS X as an NFS Server

I am not sure why I would want to do this. But if you have the need this is an excellent write up on how to get it done.

"This covers the steps necessary to export filesystems on Mac OS X via NFS. This was originally written in the 10.1 days, but is still applicable as of 10.4.2 (non-server versions).Like setting up a client, configuring OS X to be a server involves updating NetInfo. For a server, there are several Unix daemons which need to run (one of which needs to be notified if it is already running).The example filesystem to be exported in this document will be /external/path; obviously change this to something useful.The steps are to add a new directory to NetInfo, called /exports, and add directories to that which are to be exported."
