networked home directories

So, I've got two centos 5.5 boxes setup. the first machine is using NFS to map it's home directories to the second machine but no one on the second machine can access the home directories. I'm pretty sure it's just not setup right but apparently, I'm not googling the right term to find out more about how it's done. Could someone point me in the right direction? or possibly give a quick explanation? Thanks so much in advance.

On the NFS server can you post what's your /etc/exports looks like and what was the error on the other machine that tried to mount the nfs mount?

Let say on the client machine you do a manual mount like so

mkdir /mnt/test
mount -t nfs -o ro x.x.x.x:/thenfssharename/something /mnt/test

What;s the error message shown?

Sorry about the delay. I figured it out. They previous admin set it up as a two computer "cluster" using unicluster.
