Mount problem

well i have an NFS server setup on a pc "1st server" running Fedora Core 4 and i need to mount this from a non-root user. But when i try this i get this freaking error "mount: only root can do this". i do have the entry in fstab file and i tried following solution (no one are working)
entry in fstab is
1st server :/home/user/common /home/user/common nfs rw,hard,intr 0 0

Chmod +x permission to /bin/mount for every everyone
setting SUID
mounting without fstab entry and with fstab entry
adding users in entry in fstab

but none of them has resolved my issue. thats all i could find after googling and visiting many a forums.
I will appreciate any answer ...

I hope you don't really have a space in the hostname of the server.
