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
