Do you mean that you have directories named
etc. on which you mount NFS volumes so that a df -t nfs
lists those directories (and potentially others) ?
In that case, it's easy. Simply make sure your NFS mounts are mounted
(mount -at nfs will do that if you have appropriate fstab entries)
and then do rmdir /home/frank/* . You'll get errors like
rmdir: failed to remove `/home/frank/nfs1': Device or resource busy
for each mounted NFS volume whose mountpoint you attempted to remove,
but those can be ignored.
