Trouble with CFS

I'm new to this list (and to debian) so please forgive me if this is not the correct place for this question.

I'm trying to apt-get install cfs on a server i rent from uk2net. the apt get fails when i'm installing it with the following error:

# apt-get install cfs
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done

dpkg: error processing cfs (--configure):

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Also after some experimentation i have found that i am unable to mount a local nfs share, having added this to my /etc/exports:
/tmp/testdir   localhost(rw)
When i restart the nfs server I get:
# /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
Stopping NFS kernel daemon: mountd nfsd.
Unexporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...done.
Exporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...localhost:/tmp: Function not implemented
Starting NFS kernel daemon: nfsd mountd.

What am I doing wrong. As i don't have physical access to this server i am reticent to rebuild the kernel. Can anyone suggest how i can this working?
