SUMMARY: Can Solairs 9 export sub folders??

The answer to my question is you can't export a subdirectory of an
exported directory. However, you can mount it with the mount command.

My original question

Is there a way to share a sub folders in Solaris 9?

In my /etc/dfs/dfstab file I have this entry

share  -F nfs  -o rw=ntw:sunw:sgiw:macw -d "home dirs"  /export/home1

and I want to also share this folder under /export/home1

share  -F nfs  -o rw=ntw:sunw:sgiw:macw -d "martinidir" /export/home1/martini

and I get this error

share_nfs: /export/home1/martini: parent-directory (/export/home1) already shared

I realize that /export/home1/martini is already shared when sharing /export/home1.
The reason I want to do this is so that in Mac OS X 10.3.3 I want to explicitly
connect to server

Instead of having to mount
which would mount everyone's home directory that is in the /export/home1

Is there a way to do this?
Or, does Solaris 9 have the capability to share nfs volumes as appleshare
volumes or SMB so the Macs can access them?
