running NFS server on a Solaris box in user mode


I've been trying to figure out a way to mount a remote home directory in the Finder. My admin tells me that the machine my account is on cannot act as an NFS server, but that I can run an NFS server in user mode. Does anyone know how I can do this if my account is on a Solaris box?


Well, it's 8AM and I'm half asleep but work on Solaris boxes all day.

You should ask your admin exactly what he means by this. If your
account is on disks attached to machine X, then X needs to export them.
Once that happens, you can mount them.

Setting up the export is usually a root level thing but could be
controlled by sudo or something like that.
