nfs administrative tasks

I have been reading and implementing the tasks of nfs admin on the sun docs website but my nfs is still not working. Seems like the instructions on website just end all of a sudden without completing the instructions.

Anycase, this is what i have checked/did. We had nfs filesystem before our recent disk crash, so i am just trying to get it up and running again.

Checked dfstab file for entry found "rw" privileges on /opt/share filesystem.
I created the share directory since it no longer existed.
Then,
I stopped and restarted the nfs.server process with no problems.

Here is where the insturctions stop, when i do a 'df -k' i can't see the mounted share directory. What do i need to do to see it ?

We want a windows client to be able to read/write to the opt/share system.

thanks

"df -k" lists only mounted filesystems. to see a share on a local or remote system use "dfshares" or "dfshares <ip>".
