      You need to install the package named "kernel-module-nfs" to get the
      client side of things. Once you do that, it should know about the nfs
      filesystem. If that doesn't do it, there have been reports that a
      "depmod -a" command is required and/or a reboot to get the system to
      recognize the new kernel module.

      As I poke about, though, I notice that the rpcbind executable has gone
      AWOL -- so if your mount command appears to hang, <ctrl>-c out of it,
      and try it again with the "-o nolock" option, e.g.:

      mount -o nolock myserver:/bigfilesystem /mnt
