"NFS stands for Network File System, and it is used to share
an entire filesystem via a network. First in order to setup NFS,
you will need to have your network already up and running. See
ToXic_MYsT's Network_Basics-HOWTO for information on that. You will
also need to know how to recompile your kernel. For that see lyte's
Kernel Compile/Upgrade Guide. You also might want to take a peek at
the NFS-HOWTO and finally, you will need to have root access to the
box you are setting up nfs on."
