I'm not sure what machine runs the NFS (and the administrator is not
present right now), I do know, however, that I was able to nfs mount this
machine with my other RedHat machine, so there is no  problem with the
Linux nfs suppert, and I didn't do anything special to mount it (such as
contacting the administrator of the NFS server), so there is no problem
with /etc/exports.
This is done in the installation of a new hamm machine , and I did install
the nfs module. Everything seems fine, the only problem is that it doesn't

I'd like to hear some suggestions,
