when using NFS the file to be concerned with is /etc/exports and

what i do, say your friend's machine is ip i would ad din


then in  /etc/exports

/path_that_you_want_him_to_access myfriend(ro,no_root_squash)

i would reccomend keeping it read only (the ro flag) if you must do read
write replace ro with rw.  no_root_squash will allow him to mount it and
use it as  'root'. This is what i do, i only use NFS in a very trusted
enviornment. You will have to restart the NFS server for changes to
/etc/exports to take effect. (/etc/init.d/nfs-server restart)
