[clug] nfs mount failing

After discovering that using the ip in /etc/exports
does work I looked further and found that /etc/hosts has    e4
Deleting this line made things work as desired with /etc/exports
	/data1 *.eyal.emu.id.au(rw,async)

It seems that a line like this would have worked in /etc/hosts    e4.eyal.emu.id.au
Nevertheless, the hosts file was just a leftover from an experiment
a while back when the name server was not accessible.

Thanks everyone, I can now move my RAID to this server and be able
to nfs export it.
