Accessing remote file systems
SMB is the most popular protocol to access Windows systems. But from the Unix world comes NFS. NFS is a way to share files that predates SMB and Samba, and comes compiled in most Linux distributions. To enable file sharing, you must have the nfsd and mountd daemons running. You also need to add the IPs of the systems you want to allow in /etc/exports.
To access remote file systems, you simply mount them like local hard drives. To mount /usr/files from 1.2.3.4 into /mnt/files, simply type:

mount -tnfs 1.2.3.4:/usr/files /mnt/files

The -tnfs parameter may be omited.
