sabayon user owns nfs share - normal user can't write to share

I have an NFS mount and for some reason when its mounted it changes its ownership to sabayon, I'm on slack 12.1 with gslacky - I have the mount set as read/write on the server but as its owned my sabayon on the client machine I can't write to it - I've tried changing the ownership of the mount point without the share mounted and I've tried changing it with the share mounted - neither has helped. If anyone knows how I can correct this situation please let me know.

I guess in the /etc/exports file you've set all_squash to user sabayon, and this user does not have write permission on the share thing. Let me know if I'm wrong.
