linux to an imac

And exim couldn't find root. I was adding host aliases to NetInfo:

sudo nicl . -create /machines/marnie
sudo nicl . -create /machines/marnie ip_address

But failed to reboot NetInfo properly - (not that I needed to even try I think). I should have done SystemStarter restart NetInfo, not /System/Library/StartupItems/NetInfo/NetInfo stop|start, which broke anything needing the internet pretty badly, to the point where I rebooted rather than wait for Terminal to start responding again.

Some more examples of nfs setup and nicl(1) use at www.withay.com
