Hmmmm, I dont think I ever read a HOWTO on this one. NFS is pretty easy - the place I looked is on the manpages. You edit /etc/exports on the server and /etc/fstab on the client, restart the services on both, and issue the mount command on the client. Take a look at 'man nfs' and 'man exports'.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

The gentoo handbook was a good suggestion.
Actually NFS is quite easy and I have maintained networks with NFS in the past but this was the first time I was going to set up one for another network and I did not want any security issues. So I thought better to grab a handbook or something like that.
Anyways thanks for all your help. In case you have any more suggestions please do reply, there are many things I don't know.

Security and NFS don't go together very well. It's fine behind a wall, but it was designed for convenience, not security and speed.
