1. the "-t nfs" should come at the start of the line, like so:
mount -t nfs prophet4.unl.edu:/usr1/user5/nhood /disks/prophets
see 'man mount' for more information.
2. does your kernel support nfs? you have to either have it compiled into
the kernel or as a module.
if it is compiled into the kernel, you don't need to do any more.
if it is compiled as a module, you need to edit /etc/modules and
add a line containg "nfs". to load the nfs module by hand without
rebooting, type "modprobe nfs" from a root shell.
btw, you can check what filesystem types are currently supported in
your kernel by typing:
or use the procinfo command. see 'man procinfo'.

xhost is the command you need to use. try 'xhost +remotehostname' to allow
remotehostname to use your DISPLAY.
