[KSB] I did not.  After installing nfs-common, on the client, the
error is now a little less cloudy.  So now, where should I look on the
server?  Thank you very much, in advance.

bhaskar@newell:~$ ls -l /sbin/mount.nfs
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 94544 2009-10-20 12:32 /sbin/mount.nfs
bhaskar@newell:~$ sudo mount -t nfs turing.local:/export/home /tmp/home
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting turing.local:/export/home
