Yes, I tried:

IP address:
Host name: MarcComputer
Host Aliases: MarcComputer

The only problem with this is that when the router is re-set the IP 
addresses may change unless you have setup static IP addresses.

When the NFS used to work, you did not have to go through these steps. 
The process would find the NFS servers and set up the shares and fstab 
by itself. It no longer does that and the average user would not know to 
set up host definitions etc.

Somehow, the setting up of NFS shares and fstab was broken in older 
versions of Mdv and never fixed.
