is. I am trying to mount a cdrom from server A onto server B using this
command while on server B:

add a share line in /etc/dfs/dfstab
/etc/init.d/nfs.server start

You have to have the cdrom share'd from System A to allow system B to
it and then nfs mount the share from system B

On A

share /cdrom

On B

mount -F nfs -r A:/cdrom /cdrom
