Use the mount command to mount a NFS filesystem from another machine:
mount porky:/mnt/export /mnt/local
In the above command, ``porky'' is the hostname of the NFS fileserver, ``/mnt/export'' is the filesystem that porky is exporting, and ``/mnt/local'' is a directory on my local machine where I want to mount the filesystem. After the mount command runs (and if I had the proper permissions from porky) - voila! - I can `ls /mnt/local' and get a listing of the files in /mnt/export on porky.
