I use NFS for my Linux desktop. However, our users have root access
to their desktops and I'm concerned about the security of the server in
that situation. I no I can squash root but if the user can create a
local user with the same numeric userid as some other user, they could
then use that local account to access someone else's files on the NFS
Maybe I just don't know how to set up the export properly. I also
like Samba better since I can open up just one port to the client.
