It shouldn't even be that high up; it sounds more like a pure NFS issue,
but I'm not sure I have all the details straight.
I've used JBuilder in an automounted NFS environment, and everything
works pretty much as you'd expect. Granted, neither RH9 nor Irix were

How does this compare to what `ls' would show you? (try `ls /users',
`ls /users/myhome', `ls /users/myhome/TESTING.d', etc.) After the
directory is mounted, its contents should show up, i.e., if you make
sure /users/myhome is mounted (with, say, ls or cd), then do Open
File..., TESTING.d and everything below it should show up. Does this
not happen?

	Doesn't seem to matter what I do as far as mount status is
	concerned. By the tiem I get round to pening my project(s)
	after login the /users/myhome hierarchy would have to mounted
	if for no other reason that its my home directory.
	All the "ls" I've tried works although I'm going to have another look
	Thursday ( if my insides have returned to a semblance of normal
	by then ).
