I will try to use /etc/fstab to mount, and i have looked and nfs support is build in the gumstix, but I get an invalid argument error, when I try to mount.  What does invalid argument error mean??  I was checking out the busy box mailing list archive and it seems that there are some issues on the mount command itself and there could be issues with the mount that im using.  Im using revison 1229 of the gumstix and 1.1.2 busybox.  What version are you using when it works??

Hi Alex,

Create the mount point with mkdir then add an entry to /etc/exports. I remote
mount a fedora system with the entry:

fedora5:/home/gumstix/export    /home/fedora5   nfs     bg,rsize=1024,wsize=1024,nolock

'mount -a' should then mount the file system. You can always manually invoke the mount
command to do this directly. If you get an error the NFS support may not have been correctly
added to the system.

Cheers Steve.
