Install an NFS server

Installing an NFS server is as simple as

# apt-get install nfs-user-server 	

OR

 # apt-get install nfs-kernel-server

Next you have to make sure that your share is being exported and available to other machine. This can be done by change the /etc/exports file. This should look something like:

# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
#               to NFS clients.  See exports(5).
/mnt/share 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw)

You furthermore have to make sure that your /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny allow access to the kuro-box from your client machine. More information can be found in the Linux NFS FAQ

NOTE: There have been reports that the 'userland' server does not serve files bigger then 2GB (http://www.kurobox.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=894)
