the fstab line at frog is
tree:/home/user4 /mnt/tree nfs defaults 0 0
when I tried to mount this at frog with

mount /mnt/tree

I got a error message:

mount: RPC: Remote system error - No route to host

could sone help me fix this?


enable the nfs service on the machine tree.

You you also change the /etc/fstab line to read:
tree:/home/user4   /mnt/tree  nfs  defaults 1 2


Forgive me for not knowing the name for this icon on the gnome panel (it's the one with a red hat).

RedHat -> System Settings -> Server Settings -> Services

You will be asked to enter roots password and it will then display a
list of services.  On the left side is a box which either has a check
mark or not in the box.  Go down the list till you find one that
says nfs, click on the box to set it to start at boot time.  At the top
of the Service configuration window is an icon that says Start, you
want to click on that icon to start the service now.

You now should be able to mount file systems from that machine.
