Thanks for the MANY replies I received.

Unfortunately (from all of your replies) it was as I expected - you cant NFS
export the base partition and hope to export the mount points as well...

From the well known Casper Dik... :-)

Recursive mounts are not possible (the main thing that makes it impossible
is the fact that NFS clients cannot detect mount point traversal and POSIX
requires inodes within a filesystem to be unique; i.e., the three
filesystems must have a unique filesystem id on the client.

Unfortunately we have a strange NIS+/automount config here that doesn't work
when you attempt to export all of the drives... :-(

I will investigate further...

Thanks again for all of your help!
