/etc/exports is the file on the -server- that contains info that it is
sharing. In your case the machine that has the DVD in the drive would be
the server -not- the client trying to mount the nfs share.

On the server add this to /etc/export

/media/SU1010_001 192.168.0.0/16(ro,sync)

and then restart the nfs server daemon with rcnfsserver restart.

Next see if you can mount the nfs share on the -client- machine.

mount <server IP>:/media/SU1010_001 /mnt/cdrom

Perhaps you are confused about server/client machines and which needs
what configured.
