I'm _guessing_ here. The 2.4 kernels for Debian have something called
"nfs-kernel-server". I don't recall anything like this for the 2.2
kernels. So it could be that nfs was handled differently (a different
package) in 2.2. Don't quote me, though. ;-}

Getting nfs is relatively easy, insofar as there is a single very simple
config file for it (/etc/exports). However, there are other services
that have to be running before nfs will work right. I believe one of
them is portmapper. You might shut down nfs (both nfs-common and
nfs-kernel-server), and restart or start the portmapper. Then restart
the nfs services in the order they appear in /etc/rc2.d.
