NFS with 5.3-B6

I'm having a problem mounting a directory over NFS from an Irix machine to
my FreeBSD box:

10:21am ghast  / %ls -la | grep mnt
drwxr-xr-x   2 root  wheel   512 Sep 17 11:52 mnt

10:23am dragon  /home/jamie %showmount -e
export list for dragon:
/export/inst     (everyone)

10:23am ghast  / %mount -t nfs dragon:/export/inst /mnt
nfs: /mnt: No such file or directory

10:28am ghast  / %uname -a
FreeBSD ghast 5.3-BETA6 FreeBSD 5.3-BETA6 #0: Tue Sep 28 09:56:57 EDT 2004
jamie at ghast:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/ghast  i386

10:28am ghast  /boot/kernel %ls -la | grep nfs
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   204068 Sep 28 10:01 nfsclient.ko
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   109315 Sep 28 10:01 nfsserver.ko
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel    43058 Sep 28 10:01 unionfs.ko

10:28am ghast  /boot/kernel %kldload nfsclient.ko
kldload: can't load nfsclient.ko: No such file or directory

I'm not sure what crack it's on, as the module is right there.

I have been able to mount directories from our Irix systems to this
machine in the past.
