Almost got computer #3 working; KDE finally finished its startup after the umpteenth attempt, but now the xterms won't stay put, they crash within milliseconds. Probably the same old problems I've been having with NFS, either "Stale NFS file handle" or the always-popular "Input/output error". And then it goes away after a while and everything's fine. For a few minutes until it happens again. Probably some simple reason for it. Maybe because I specify 'nolock' as an option? I use that because it lets me mount quickly, but I don't really know what it does on the bits-and-bytes level.
