Did that. YaST was unable to find the NFS server when it did it's scan
for NFS servers on this network. I entered the IP address for the server
set up on toshiba manually. I was then able to access the exported
directory and set a mount point. When I finished, YaST reported:

Unable to mount NFS entries from /etc/fstab

However, it appears to have mounted it anyway. Now I can't get rid of
it. I'm beginning to think that YaST has a problem.
