I am struggling with this ... I have an XP Pro SP3 OS running on a Lenovo Laptop ... this has VMplayer 4.0.2 running on it with UBUNTU 10.04.4 ... I have installed the NFS client 3.5 in XP PRO.

I can ping Ubuntu from XP and ping XP from Ubuntu ... when I go to Map Network Drive in XP and Browse, it shows the NFS Network ... drilling down into this I find the /etc share I set up ... it gets to the login and suggests I am logged in but when I go finish XP comes back and says this network path cannot be found ... I am thinking the above example is for mounting WINDOWS shares in UBUNTU ... I need to do this the other way round
