can not export shares

I have set up a Dell Power Edge server with FC4 and cannot connect to the network shares with the Win XP workstations. I can't seem to export the shares on the server. When I run
smbclient -L bvsserver
I get the result
Error connecting to (Connection refused)
connection to bvsserver failed
When I run
exportfs -a -v
I just end up at a command line with no indication that anything was exported. My /etc/exports file is:
/shared         optiplex(rw,sync) d610(rw,sync)
I now realize that I have lost the ability to administer the system via VNC. Seems that I can not open a terminal, or anything out of the 'applications' menu, was able to do all that just a minute ago. That makes things difficult...

Oh well...

Are you trying smb or nfs connections? smbclient is for smb and /etc/exports file is for nfs.
