Question linux to linux access

My lab has a Redhat 7.0 server with 60 systems runnin Win2K. I have configured samba on my system, the workstation, [ I can't access the server] for linux 2 windows and also windows to linux access. however I'm nonplussed about linux to linux access. How do I access my friends linux box from my linux box. I think it's got something with NFS.
/prroc/filesystems does list nfs and smbfs. can anyone help me out?

p.s The Best Samba tutorial (3 parts) is at

If the server run samba too use it ... but from your post I don't think so
A very common way to share files in Unix is NFS ( but you need to know if it's active on server and you can access it (you still need username and password) ... just ask to server admin.
