This is how I setup my nfs.
1. edit /etc/exports on the server side.
Examples: /storage1/ 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw,async) This allows directory /storage1 available to the entire class c address of 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.255. It also allows read write ability to all and keeps changes in sync.
2. type ' service nfs start '
3. To make nfs server start at booup type ' chkconfig --level 345 nfs on '
4. From the remote machine type command as follows. You will need to make it match your system setting.
Example of mount command: type ' mount -t nfs -o rw 192.168.1.3:/storage1 /mnt/nfsmountpoint ' This will mount the /storage1 directory from machine with IP 192.168.1.3 at direcory /mnt/nfsmountpoint. Requires directory /mnt/nfsmountpoint to be created.

Don't think I missed anything. Will change if I see a problem or hear from someone.
