how to mount remote file system

Hi friends,

In my case, there are serveral PCs running Linux in a LAN.

I would like to to mount the directory /A_river of machine-A to the file system of another machine machine-B so that I can access files in that directory.

I do not know how to do this. The situation is complicated by the following needs. I need /A_river of machine-A can be mounted by serveral machine, machine-B, machine-C, machine-D, etc. Shall I repeat the operations on each machine. What is the wise way to do this.

STEP 1:-go through following steps on machine-A /etc/exports & add following ...
/A_river <network address/subnet address>(rw,sync)
2. restart the service nfs & portmap

STEP 2:-go to machine-B & do the following things...
1. make a mount point
mkdir /A_river
2. mount machine-A:/A_river /A_river
3. cd /A_river & you can access this files what ever there in that directory ....

you can follow up the step 2 for all the machine (ie. machine-C,machine-D)
