Well I'd probably point them towards the how-to at TLDP. "Why though, it's so hard to understand?" Yes it is, but NFS is IMHO advanced enough that one shouldn't really need to be worrying about it/messing with it without some prior knowledge in that general area. Then I'd answer specific questions afterwards.
What at a command? Mounting NFS? I didn't even know there was another way, so I guess I'd cover that in A.
Completely (well nearly) unrelated, but I'd start out explaining sockets I guess, and hopefully eventually get a vague idea in their head. Then I'd explain the need for security wrt those sockets, and show how ssl provides that security. In all honesty though, I'd move their thread to Linux - Security and request that one of our security guru's give the question the attention it deserves
