Export Filesystem as NFS
According to http://www.synology.com/enu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5569, the NFS package shipped in Nov 2007 is does not work properly. Replace /usr/syno/etc.defaults/rc.d/S83nfsd.sh with the following.
Note: As of September 2008, Synology firmwares seem to support NFS nicely out-of-the-box (/etc/exports is even editable from web interface).
Caveat emptor: This is not supported by Synology. It is not my solution. All thanks and accountability belongs to NetBoot.

Note the main change is to add "-kill"
