Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have searched and found only a few threads covering this topic.
I have setup a freenas box to share across bla bla bla......
When i try to mount a share i get the following:
KDE-Laptop Documents # mount -t nfs 192.168.2.69:/mnt/two_x_500 /home/travalon/nas
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on 192.168.2.69:/mnt/two_x_500,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
on the first machine i found a thread that suggested I install nfs-common so through apt I did and mounted fine.
Now on the second machine I get the same message as above and tried to install nfs-common but I can't seem to get it through the cli or pkgmgr. I googled it and found a deb pkg but it didn't work. so now what?
Both machines are running the same version and os MintKDE one is a desktop connected with an ethernet cable and the other is a laptop connected w/wifi.
Appreciate all responses.

Ok so I managed to mount both volumes from the second machine.
( sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.X.XX/mnt/"name of volume" /home/"Name of folder"/'Name of folder for that volume" - I.E. /home/travalon/nas/500gigs)
@ 1st I could only access 1 volume. Every time I tried to get into the other volume I would get kicked back to the original. Having read the freenas man cover to cover, I remembered something about seperate directories. I re-read that part but didn't understand it. NOW I DO! I was trying to mount all my volumes into 1 folder. I had to create a seperate folder for each volume to reside in. Now everything works. Now ALL I need to do is get them to auto-mount every time I log onto a machine.
Thanks Kustom for the suggestion.
