    I have 3 Kubuntu/Linux PCs running on my LAN. PC1 is my primary
    PC that I do most of my work on. It runs the 'feisty' release
    of kubuntu, which I believe is release 7.04. PC2 is on
    the network mostly so I can use the disk space for backups.
    It also runs the 'feisty' release. PC3 is a new PC on
    which I plan to do a special project. From PC3 I would like
    to mount files systems from PC1 so I have access to information
    on my primary PC. PC3 runs the 'gutsy' release of Kubuntu
    which is release 7.10.

    NFS is working fine when I mount the filesystem on PC2 on to
    PC1. However, when I try to mount the filesystem on PC2 on to
    PC3, or when I try to mount a filesystem from PC1 on PC3,
    I get the following error.
    Can anyone guide me on how to handle this error message?

    When I run 'dmesg | tail -20', I get the following results.
    I don't think the dmesg is meaningful, because if I run the
    mount command again, the output from dmesg does not change
    at all.

    Nevermind! I found the solution. I installed the nfs-common
    package on PC3 and I was then able to mount using nfs.
    I'm sorry I did not try that before posting.

    Bewilderment, plea for help, inspiration, installation, success.
    All this in 15 minutes. Another small step for Linuxkind.
    We knew you could do it!
