I'm running an NFS service on a Windows box in order to connect to it.  (If there is a better and easy way to do this, please let me know.)

Anyway, I've got NIS running and Windows 2003 R2 is mapping the Linux to Windows users for authentication.

I'm attempting to mount the Windows NFS share, called "fs2share."

The command I'm using is:

[sudo] mount -t fs2:/fs2share

No error is generated and the command seems to work...  How do I know mount a directory or some such?

(If I issue the command mount fs2:/fs2share /home/ I get an input/output error.  I assume that's because there is an existing home directory?)

Any help or infor would be greatly appricated!
