Can't write to NFS drive.

I've recently started running Slackware 9 on my 2 computers. I've set up NFS and can see and use files on my other computer, but can't write to it. I've browsed through the forums, checked slackware essintials, and read the man files. What am I missing?

Here's my fstab:

/dev/hdb3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /home/mother nfs defaults,rw 0 2
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windoze ntfs defaults,ro 1 2
/dev/hda5 /mnt/windozedata ntfs defaults,ro 1 2

and my exports on the other computer:

/home/sean/shared (rw,sync,no_root_squash)

The user accounts are set the same on both computers. I have the premissions set wide open (rwxrwxrwx).

I hate asking because I feel like I'm missing something stupid.
