Yeah, I agree.   I tried to get it working over NFS but (luckily?)
couldn't get it to work.  I emailed here for help and got none, so I just
went with the rdist/scp method of pushing it out.

Things worked after that and now I don't care (sudo-wise ;) if my network
goes down.   :)

I'm a free-range carnivore.
