Actually, two different situations. The first method (mountd then nfsd)
is used if you brought up the machine without anything in exports or
nfs_server is set to NO in /etc/sysconfig, and you wanted to add nfs
serving to a running machine. 

The second is if /etc/exports was populated at boot time, and nfs_server
was set to YES, and then you wanted to add or subtract filesystems to
nfs service.

Hope that helps,
