bash# mkdir /nfs
Now that there is a directory there, let's modify the /etc/fstab file and add a line like this:
nfs.bob.org:/disk /nfs nfs bg,hard,rsize=8192,wsize=8192
You would need to change the server name from nfs.bob.org to whatever your server name is. Once this line is in there, you are ready to mount the directory.
bash# mount /nfs
Take a look around the directory and make sure everything looks right. If the PIDs in the NFS file system do not match the ones on your machine then you will get numbers instead of names. This can be solved by just using the same PIDs and accounts. This is available by using NIS.
