    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    It may not work. You need to mount an NFS export on a writable directory because it needs to interact with the file system. Since I am not an expert with this, I am only guessing... Sorry - best I can do on a minute's notice!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
