NFS problem

Do you have portmapper running on node1? Do you have nfsd running on node1? 
Does your /etc/exports file include /home? Is the /home export open to the 
client node?

Do you have portmapper running on your client node? Do you have NFS support in 
your kernel or do you have a mount daemon running like rpciod or biod?

Finally, do you have any firewalling on either of the nodes?

The client and server must have all appropriate software running first and be 
properly configured before anything will work. Also, if any of those ports are 
blocked, at either end, things won't work.
