Mount NFS volume to MacOS X

Okay, I've been following all the information that I can find on the web about mounting a LINUX NFS volume to MacOS X. So far, no luck. After adding my Linux box information to NetInfo, I was able to use showmount -a to see the NFS sharing information on the box, but the volume just doesn't mount. Any idea or instruction of how to mount a NFS volume to MacOS X? From the command line or from NetInfo Manager? Thanks.

Okay, I kinda solved my own problem. Here was the mistake that I made. In the /etc/exports file on the Linux box, it's really picky about the space. So make sure that you don't follow the format.

/stuff_i_want_to_mount hostinfo(privledge,insecure)

No space in the bracket.

and downloaded NFSManager 1.0b7c which is a GUI that makes everything easy.
