Description of problem:
mounting nfs-shares should be easier. I am convert from Suse. I did try ubuntu too. But the toughest is Fedora. I wish the Gui for exporting shared folders should automatically adjust firewall/selinux for a newbie/non-techie. May be, you may keep an advanced tab for techies to fine tune it. Similarly for mounting nfs-shares too.
How do you expect an average desktop user, with one or two SOHO systems, to make so much adjustments in shell. Please google for this problem - to make nfs work in fedora is really a nightmare.

Please educate me... what does the other disro have that make it easier to mount
Nice question, sir.
Firstly, I prefer there is an option that listens the LAN to find out as to
whether there are any other hosts that could be contacted that and that could be
mounted easily. Please refer to Suse's Yast's configuration of NFS client.
Secondly, adjusting firewall is really tough. Do you expect novice users to
enter the port numbers? Rather, option in nfs server/client configuration module
that enables users to adjust firewall therefrom (including warning of
consequences) is suggested.
Hope you like my suggestions.
I do and thank you for taking the time to point these out...
I'm going to turn this bug in to a feature request so we can
put it on the TODO que...
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Please re-read my comment (#3). Does FC6 include these features? Though my
initial posting is as a bug, it was later converted (by Steve) as feature
request. Well, I do not thing any changes (I requested) has been made into FC6.
Fedora Core 4 and Fedora Core 6 are no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
