First, is it safe to assume you specified the export as writable (rw) in your /etc/exports on the server?
Second, did you deal with the user ID issue? NFS mapps the numeric user IDs of the files on the server to the database of local users on the client. So, if user joeblow is UID 1001 on the server, but joeblow is UID 1003 on the client, then joeblow will not be able to write to his own files. The two ways I know how to deal with this are to make sure all users have the same UIDs on both boxes, or to use a map file, which you can read about in the man page for exports(5).
Guess I typed too slow.
