Can you "spell out" how I would do this option 2? Basically I need to
know exactly what I'm supposed to do to get a directory called /ftp/music
that is -> to /dosc/music
I want EVERYONE (anonymous users) to be able to access it, not just the
people who have accounts on my system.

1. Anonymous FTP->/dosc/...

Make an empty directory /ftp/music.

Put this line into /etc/exports:

/dosc/music     localhost

Make sure that rpc.mountd and rpc.nfsd are started when your machine is
booted (with Slackware, uncomment them in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2).

Put this line into /etc/fstab:

localhost:/dosc/music   /ftp/music      nfs     defaults        1 1

With a standard installation like Slackware, that should be all.
Otherwise check that the first "mount -a" call has the option "-t nonfs"
and that you later (e.g. rc.inet2) do a "mount -a -t nfs".
