CFS problem

hi guys,

im having a problem using CFS.i dont have any problems
with attaching (cattach) and making directory (cmkdir)
but when i issue the ls command in my /crypt directory
there is no subdirectory where i can edit my clear-text
directory and i also found out that my /crypt directory
is not mounted and i believe this is the source of my
problem. im using cfs-1.4.1-5.i386.rpm another problem
is cname and ccat doesnt work in this version.please
help i really want to expand my knowledge in linux
security and administration thank you. see my
configuration below i might be missing something

$sudo mkdir /null
$sudo chmod 0000 /null
$sudo mkdir /crypt
$echo "/null localhost" >> /etc/exports

/etc/rc.d/rc.local config
#### /etc/rc.d/rc.local beginning
if [ -x /usr/sbin/cfsd ]; then
/usr/sbin/cfsd && \
/bin/mount -o port=3049,intr localhost:/null /crypt
#### /etc/rc.d/rc.local end

/etc/exports config
#### /etc/exports beginning
/.cfsfs localhost() #Used for cfs
/null localhost
#### /etc/exports end


cfs, encryption, security
