#man exports

One should have the nfs server installed on the machine.
For one to mount a partition of machine A on machine B, edit the file /etc/exports in machine A.

< partition to be mounted of A > <mount point > (parameters for accesing the mountpoint)

restart nfs or run the command exportfs -ra to force nfsd to re-read the /etc/exports file.
