What does 'ls -ld /software' on the NFS server (mvnas) show?

suse:~ # showmount -e mvnas
Export list for mvnas:
/software (everyone)
/nfs      (everyone)
suse:~ #

mvnas is running windows 2000 storage server on Dell powervualt 745.  NFS is turned on with simple maps and root access allowed, I can see the maps as you see.  Our linux server prozac has NFS also and it works fine, here is the mounts on it:

suse:~ # showmount -e prozac
Export list for prozac:
/hda  *
/hde1 *
/     *

If it were a problem with the export of the volme you wouldn't be able to mount the volume. It looks to me like the failure you are seeing is a permissions issue on the content of the mounted volume.

I'm not even able to cd /mvnas after it is mounted, I get permission denied.

That implies that the w2k server isn't allowing UID 0 read & execute permission on the exported data file/dirs.
