  11          files residing on this system using Sun's Network File System
  12          protocol.  To compile the NFS server support as a module,
  13          choose M here: the module will be called nfsd.
  15          You may choose to use a user-space NFS server instead, in which
  16          case you can choose N here.
  18          To export local file systems using NFS, you also need to install
  19          user space programs which can be found in the Linux nfs-utils

  24          Below you can choose which versions of the NFS protocol are
  25          available to clients mounting the NFS server on this system.
  26          Support for NFS version 2 (RFC 1094) is always available when
  27          CONFIG_NFSD is selected.

  49          Solaris NFS servers support an auxiliary NFSv3 ACL protocol that
  50          never became an official part of the NFS version 3 protocol.
  51          This protocol extension allows applications on NFS clients to
  52          manipulate POSIX Access Control Lists on files residing on NFS
  53          servers.  NFS servers enforce POSIX ACLs on local files whether
  54          this protocol is available or not.
  56          This option enables support in your system's NFS server for the
  57          NFSv3 ACL protocol extension allowing NFS clients to manipulate
  58          POSIX ACLs on files exported by your system's NFS server.  NFS
  59          clients which support the Solaris NFSv3 ACL protocol can then
  60          access and modify ACLs on your NFS server.
  62          To store ACLs on your NFS server, you also need to enable ACL-
  63          related CONFIG options for your local file systems of choice.
