oh it's very easy, except for the locking stuff which can be a pest.
see the man pages for exports(5), mount_nfs(8), and showmount(8).
Edit /etc/exports, and add to /etc/rc.conf:


start all that stuff (ex. by rebooting), and then use 
'showmount -e localhost' to make sure it's working.  Once it's
running, whenever you change /etc/exports, there's no need to reboot.
Instead incant '/etc/rc.d/mountd reload'.

ok?  problem?
