Newbie here. My 2 machines with RH5.2, also are connected by a cross-over
cable. NFS worked almost right of the box. Everything what I needed was
1. run "setup" as root, make sure that the nfs support is enabled.
2. run netconf, also as root, and give the proper permissions for the
directories to be exported.
3. mount the nfs directory. You may want to see my webpage:

Hope this helps. Best regards,
