When attempting to modify contents on a NFS export, mapped via Software Services for Unix, receive error: "Media is write protected". When mapping from client, UID & GID are correct.

- /etc/exports:
/mnt/local *(rw,no_root_squash)

- ls -al:
drwxr-xr-x    3 1067 1039 4096 Oct 24 12:09 directory/

- mount command from XP client:
U:       \\server\mnt\local      UID=1067, GID=1039
                                                rsize=8192, wsize=8192
                                                mount=soft, timeout=0.8
                                                retry=1, locking=yes
                                                fileaccess=755, lang=ANSI
                                                casesensitive=no

From the XP client, the directory is marked read-only. Also, access is extremely slow.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been working on this issue for a week.

The user, 1067, has full permission to the directory.

- ls -al:
drwxr-xr-x    3 1067 1039 4096 Oct 24 12:09 directory/

After you export the nfs  you come back and change your /etc/exports file, the changes you make may not take effect immediately. You should run the command exportfs -ra to force nfsd to re-read the /etc/exports   file. If you can't find the exportfs command, then you can kill nfsd with the -HUP flag (see the man pages for kill for details).  
 try this check hosts.allow to make sure you haven't forgotten to list any new client machines there.
Also check the host listings on any firewalls you may have set up

Without making any further permission changes, ran exportfs -ra and remapped the nfs mount in windows. This did the trick. Thank you so much!
