How to mount a NFS share folder of windows 2008 in RHEL machine?


I am setting up the file service in windows 2008 server. I would like to know how to access the NFS shared folder in Red Hat Linux machine?

When I tried the command "mount -e <ip address of windows 2008> it shows correctly the NFS shared folder as g:.

But would like to know how to mount it so that I can keep some software DVDs there.
