Support for mounting NFS shares

Apparently my system is not setup to support mounting NFS shares.

nodev   proc
nodev   sockfs
nodev   tmpfs
nodev   shm
nodev   pipefs
nodev   devpts
nodev   usbdevfs
nodev   autofs
nodev   binfmt_misc
How do I enable support? I'm running red hat 7.2 by the way.

I got it working, I just had to start 3 services-- portmap, statd, and nfslock

After that I was able to mount the NFS server. Now I have 3 questions, hopefully someone can answer:

1. It seems that any user is able to mount my NFS server's exported directories. Is this correct? How do I add security to my NFS server? I would want the client to enter a username or password before being able to mount the NFS server...

2. The directory that I am exporting on the NFS server, the permission was set to 700. With those permissions, the NFS client couldn't see anything on the mounted directory. When I changed the permission of the directory that I am exporting on the NFS server to 755, then the client could see everything in the mounted directory. Is this correct? What should I set the permission to on the directory that I am exporting on my NFS server?

3. How do I export my NFS directories in rw (read-write)? Right now, they are exported in ro (read-only). Is there a conf file for the NFS server?
