Sharing folders across linux network


I am trying to find out how I can mount a folder from a remote computer on the local computer. When I try to look this up in google I just get pages and pages of how to network from linux to windows. I just want to share a folder from linux box to linux box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

mount -t smbfs -o username=jimbob,password=jimbobs_password //server/dir /mnt/folder

where "jimbob" is your username, "jimbobs_password" is your password, "server/dir" is the server/location you are trying to mount to, and "/mnt/folder" is your lcoal mount point.

If I put 16 gigs of information in the shared folder and then use nfs to access it would this likely cause a serious drain on computer resources??
