Sigh! So much for my careful attempts to diagnose my problems!

So, here's what I'm trying to do. I've set up a second box with a 
wireless connection to my router. I can ping back and fourth. What I 
want in the end is an NFS mount over the wireless connect. Is there an 
incremental testing procedure (not telnet apparently!) or do I just 
need to go and attempt to configure NFS?

Thanks.
