NFS (not root fs) mounting in Angstrom

Does anyone know how to mount an external NFS share under Angstrom, so
I can share a few files and I don't have shuttle a thumb drive around
while programming?

Here's my situation in more detail:

On the Beagle, ifconfig says that I have a working eth0 interface
(ethernet USB stick) and I can ping various different machines.

I have a desktop Debian box on my local network (let's say the address
is I have added the address of my Beagle to the
exports on this box so that it is visible. I have also set up
appropriate routing so that I can ping the box from the Beagle and

Then, on the beagle, I type (as root)

mount -t nfs /export

...which I would expect to mount the /export folder. However, instead
I get the following error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on
       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

Looking at dmesg shows nothing useful. This looks like I don't have a
NFS handler installed, which is odd since I thought the kernel could
boot from NFS.

I have googled around for a couple of hours, and I have found several
articles which talk about mounting a root file system under NFS, but
none on how to just mount some external directory.

I have seen several mentions of packages, so I took a look using "opkg
list | grep fs" which shows several packages, but just one package
with "nfs" in its name - "task-base-nfs", which apparently contains no

So, I'm stumped on how to enable this. Any ideas or pointers would be
gratefully appreciated.

And as usual I find the answer 5 monutes after posting the question.

Either create a link from /bin/mount to busybox, or type

  busybox mount -t nfs /export

And presto! I can now see the NFS mount. I hope that this helps
someone else.

And also as usual I spot the typo 5 seconds after posting the answer.
"5 monutes" indeed. I need more coffee.

yep, thx to yr post that took <20 seconds to resolve. God I love the
