Assuming the mount succeeds in the end, rename the three ?mnt files in 
/var/lib/nfs (on the server). Also, check that /etc/exports has NO extraneous 
whitespace - especially at the beginings of lines - and no comments (at least 
before the active entries.) I have had endless problems with nfs which were 
resolved by cleaning the exports file!

You will need to have nfs to mount a share, yes.
