Thanks for the help. The original question:

> MachineA - my desktop with a CD Rom drive
> MachineB - The filer
> MachineC - Another server w/o CD Rom that is on par with the filer.
> MachineA can create and delete stuff on MachineB, but can't change
> permissions or ownership of files and directories. Since I didn't
> create the permissions, I haven't tried to fix them yet, rather I'm
> trying to accomplish my task.
> So I put the installation CD in the CD-Rom drive in MachineA. I then

> share /cdrom/cdrom0
> No errors.
> I logged into machineC as root and did:
> mount machineA:/cdrom/cdrom0 /mnt/machineA_cd
> It worked fine.
> HOWEVER - the contents of the directory was empty.
> So I am not sure which step I'm missing, it seems to have shared fine,

The Solution:

I modified the /etc/rmmount.conf file and added (on MachineA):

share cdrom*

I then made sure my NFSD was running.

I then went to MachineC and did:

mount MachineA:/cdrom /cdrom

I then ejected the CD and re inserted it on MachineA, and voila, it
seems to be working fine.

Regards and thanks.
