NFS - Fedora 16 client

I'm having trouble setting up my NFS client on Fedora 16, which I previously had setup on Fedora 14. I started following the same process as before, but now the NFSLOCK service won't start. With "service nfs status" I get: Loaded:
error (Reason: No such file or directory)

With "service nfslock start" I get:
Failed to issue method call: Unit nfslock.service...No such file...

I've even tried uninstalling NFS-UTILS. What do I need to look at? TIA.

Ok, I figured it out. I'll post for posterity. Anyone who knows what he's doing, feel free to correct me. The first problem was that when I was using Fedora 14, I was using the "nfslock" service on the client. Apparently, now you use "nfs-lock", which was working the whole time. At this point, I needed to open port 2049 on the server's firewall and everything worked.
