For some reason I can’t mount my NFS share (which I’ve done many times from the LiveDVD during the installation).

Code:

storm ~ # mount -t nfs "192.168.111.250:/personal shared" /root/nfs/ -o sync
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on 192.168.111.250:/personal shared,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
       need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so
storm ~ #


Any ideas? Any help greatly appreciated!

Cheers,
Andy

There's a HOWTO on the Gentoo Wiki. Take a look at that and report back. ;)

Nice!
Code:

emerge --ask nfs-utils
/etc/init.d/rpc.statd start


That did the trick - thanks very much!
