muLinux cannot be used as "NFS server"; daemons are missing.

This is up to the NFS server, RedHat.

In order to mount, as client, an NFS volume you need, on the mulinux side,
only of the command "mount" and a working network. Thus, the floppy #1
is enough.

My /etc/exports look like:

# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
# to NFS clients. See exports(5).



Modern linuxes use a new command (exportfs?) in order to setup the server
side. Try to get the man page: I do not remember.
