You can either mount it from a command line or add it to your /etc/fstab file to mount at boot time like this:

Code:
<ip or hostname of server>:/<shared-folder>     /mnt/directory     nfs     rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14
This is explained in the man pages. man nfs for more details or take a look at the NFS howto's at www.tldp.org for more options, setups.. etc.
