Mounting an NFS Share in Linux

I'm not new to Linux but could anyone tell me how to mount a NFS share to a CentOS machine.
I've done this before a couple of times but haven't taken note of it.
The CentOS is in Workstation and the file share has been enabled so the Share is on the E Drive.
- If the share is mounted by default where or on what directory does it appear (I've gone thru all the directories and can't see it)
- How do I mount the file share once discovered (I've seen a number of different ways using the mount command mount -t , mount -o etc and these will be followed with ntfs or cifs)

I would really love to master this for once and for all because up to now it's been hit or miss (alot more miss than hit)

You can use the mount command without options to see currently mounted shares, if any.

/etc/fstab would typically contain the mount paths of any share configured to regularly mount.

There's a man page for all of those things including fstab.
