Embedded Fedora 3: What files are needed to setup NFS ?

Hi all.

I just started with a new company, and while I eventually will be doing DSP algorithums and hardware development, my first task turns out to be trying to get NFS client and server mounting working on a PC-104 platform. A PC-104 is a 4" by 4" industral computer board running a Pentium 3 with about 1Meg of memory and no hard disk.

It looks like the previous engineer(s) (who did not document anything) created a sandbox on development linux machine with the /bin, /sbin, /etc and other directories on it, hand copied a bunch of files over to it to support the application that we are running (a telescope). None if this is even checked into source control...

These files are all compressed into a file, combined with the kernel in the /boot partition on the flash. Finally the application and it's support files are also added in there flash partitions. Simple explanition to a complex set of steps -- but I have that all figured out and can build my own bootable flashes.

I'm stuck however figuing out what files I need to add and modify to get NFS working. (other than the Kernel, as that is handled through the makeconfig app).

All of this is running on Fedora 3 -- I can't change that right now (my first week at the job). I have about 30% of my ram-disk and 512M flash free, so I still am not resource constrained.

So, given that I have a bootable Fedora 3 system that supports network and tftp already, a linux development box running the same but complete version of the OS, the question remains as to what else I need to do to get NFS working compleatly.

What files do I need to add, where do they go, and what init script files do I need to modify to get it all started?

Is there a document or a script somewhere that will tell me this?
