NFS Installing Error

I'm still trying to install on my IBM Thinkpad. I think I'm close with
NFS. I get the following error both on the Thinkpad when I try to access
my CD ROM on the desktop -- and I get it if I try to mount this NFS volume

Obviously, I missed something? I'm hoping one of you can tell me what--or
how to find/fix this.

Here's the command and the error

mount /nfs.cdrom

mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refusedAnd here's the
relevant line from fstab:

isrd:isrd/cdrom /nfs.cdrom nfs user,exec,dev,nosuid,ro 1 1

Believe it or not, I've never actually had an nfs volume anywhere. This is
my first nfs attempt.

On the good news side, I'm tickled pink that I've gotten ipchains working
so that this method of install may actually work -- where non other has
yet succeeded. Looks the most promissing, anyway.
