I use /mnt/ for mounting nfs shares, and for mounting iso loopbacks and whatever
else comes by. 

This computer is running F11.

I have two NFS fileservers that are automatically mounted on this computer when
it's booted up.  One is named jeff and the other is named fileserver, and they
are mounted at /mnt/jeff and /mnt/fileserver.

Here is the relevant portion of /etc/fstab on this computer:

fileserver:/nas/NASDisk-00002/files/ /mnt/fileserver         nfs
defaults        0 0 
jeff:/			/mnt/jeff         nfs	defaults        0 0

jeff runs Centos 5.

[frankcox mutt ~]$ cat /mnt/jeff/etc/exports
[frankcox mutt ~]$ ls /mnt/jeff
bin   dev  home  lib64       media  mnt  opt   root  selinux  sys  usr
boot  etc  lib   lost+found  misc   net  proc  sbin  srv      tmp  var

In short, as long as the nfs service is running on the fileserver,
your /etc/exports file is correct and your firewall is set up correctly (I
already posted my note about how to do that) then it should work.
