[SLUG] NFS mount problem


I have a vfat partition mounted on box A and I am then trying to nfs mount
that from box B.  Box A looks to accept the nfs mount request OK judging
by the /proc/fs/nfs and /var/lib/nfs entries, but box B is still denied
the access; the message from box B (NFS client) being:

 mount 192.168.255.131:/mnt/hda /mnt/disk/
mount: 192.168.255.131:/mnt/hda failed, reason given by server: Permission denied


I have /etc/exports and /etc/hosts.allow set up OK.


>From the NFS server (box A):

 cat /proc/fs/nfs/exports
# Version 1.0
# Path Client(Flags) # IPs
/mnt/hda        192.168.255.17(ro,no_root_squash,async,wdelay) # 192.168.255.17


 cat /var/lib/nfs/etab
/mnt/hda        192.168.252.0/255.255.252.0(ro,async,wdelay,hide,secure,no_root_squash,no_all_squash,subtree_check,secure_locks,mapping=identity,anonuid=-2,anongid=-2)


 cat /var/lib/nfs/xtab
/mnt/hda        192.168.255.17(ro,async,wdelay,hide,secure,no_root_squash,no_all_squash,subtree_check,secure_locks,mapping=identity,anonuid=-2,anongid=-2)


 tail /var/log/messages
Feb 19 19:54:38 lan-255-131 rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from 192.168.255.17:783 for /mnt/hda (/mnt/hda)
Feb 19 19:54:38 lan-255-131 rpc.mountd: getfh failed: Operation not permitted


Clues anyone?
