strangeness with NFS

I have two linux computers that I need to share files with. I have checked to make sure that nfs is running on both machines. The nfs server's export files reads as:

the fstab file on my client machine is: /TheWeb nfs rw 0 0

I rebootede both and am unable to write to the /TheWeb folder because it says "permission denied"

I do not have a firewall running <yet> and my hosts.allow file says:

I have the same user name and password on both computers. I also have smb working perfectly on the same computer I need the nfs server to work on.

Is there something obvious I'm missing?

n/m, I'm used to having root user do anything. I was trying to copy as root, and nfs was told to shrink remote root to nobody. It's a good lesson for anyone in the future!!! sorry about that
