This should be simple storage allocation

I have a user that needs a 50GB storage chunk allocated to him ... that chunk needs to be mounted and acessable via nfs

A step by step would be very helpful

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. get a NFS box that has +50GB to spare (with quota support to limit it to 50 GB if you are not using a 50GB filesystem)
2. export the thing in NFS (depending on your NFS box...)
3. mount the filesystem in the target box (mount -t nfs <target_box:/target_share /local_directory)

Be more specific if you want better answers.
