Encrypt password for NFS

So I'm editing my /etc/fstab to mount my nfs drives...

it takes a passwordassword option, but this seems highly unsafe... I know there is a way to feed it in a file with the encrypted password, and I think I can figure this out... but how do I take my password and encrypt it into a file/hash for nfs to understand?

Well I still have the above problem.. but I'm also having another nfs mount problem...

I have a share with full read/write access to anyone who can see it, but it fails to mount.

/usr/sbin/showmount -e
Export list for
/c/media (everyone)
/c/laballa (everyone)

[root@localhost devel]# mount /mnt/laballa/
mount.nfs: Input/output error

What is wrong?
