I am trying to mount from my RedHat server to another RedHat server across the network.

I am running mount -t ext3 server.remote.location:/gevol /mnt/gedev

But I am getting a special device server.remote.location:/gevol does not exist

The directory does exist.  I just need to copy a directory from that server to my sever.  Is there an easy way?

Try using samba shares instead of direct mapping

Use nfs instead of samba for linux to linux share.

define the shares in /etc/exports
mount -t nfs server:/sharename

Either method will work, nfs or samba is a matter of preference

If you need just copy directory, you can use ssh connection.
Have a look at SCP
http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_copy

or winscp if client is using Windows.

If you connected to server via SSH, you can use SCP.

rysic's solutions will also work.  It's basically connecting via FTP on port 22

Well not exacly... it is secure and you don't need FTP server setting up. Just OpenSSH daemon started.

Here are the complete steps:

Let's assume the source (server.remote.location) server is serverA and the other server is ServerB.

On serverA do the following:

vi /etc/exports
then add the following save and exit
/gevol *(rw,sync)
then you run this on serverA:
/etc/init.d/nfs restart

From serverB:
mkdir /mnt/gedev

then
mount ServerA:/gevol /mnt/gedev

if you want your mount point existed after serverB reboot, you set the mount point in fstab:
vi /etc/fstab
add the following line then save and exit
ServerA:/gevol           /mnt/gedev        nfs       defaults      0 0

Done!
