Are you getting errors or do you just not know how to mount it?

To mount it manualy try:

# mount -t nfs <nfsserver_ipaddress>:/your/nfs/share/on/nfs/server /mnt/your/nfs/mount
or in fstab
<nfsserver_ipaddress>:/your/nfs/share/on/nfs/server /mnt/your/nfs/mount nfs <options here> 0 0

now just
# mount -a -t nfs
If you are getting errors, make sure the box on wich you are trying to mount the nfs share has nfs support.
