lets say you want to export /myexports directory from mandrake1 machine to suse1 machine. with read write permissions
on the madrake machine as root
/usr/sbin/exportfs -o rw suse1:/myexports
on the suse machine
# to check if the directory is exported
/usr/sbin/showmount -e mandrake1

# to mount
mount -t nfs suse1:/myexports /mnt/mandrake

check the man pages of exportfs , mount , exports for more details

another way to do it is using automount (so that you dont have to mount each and every time)
