Unhappy NFS Permissions

Ive mounted a vfat fs on a RedHat 7.0 and have exported the dir in my /etc/exports file, which has rw perms. After doing that I have /usr/sbin/exportfs -ra. The nfs services are all running 100%.

On the client side Im accessing the info through a NT box with unix utils which is also fine.

The problem I have is that Im able to access the files but not write to the disk.

Ive also noticed in my /proc/fs/nfs/exports file that it the client pc has ro perms and there is noway in chaning this.

Ive also though it might be that root is owner of the mount therefor explaining why only root has access and the rest hasnt, how do you change the perms on the mount so that all can access the fs.

Thanking all for there input
