Did you run the /bin/nfs-server-config script? This should
install portmap, mountd, and nfsd as services for you, and
create a sample /etc/exports file if you don't already have
Once those services are installed, you should be able to
see them in the Services view. You can start them from that
view; or, from a command line, you should be able to type
# net start nfsd
...and see portmap, mountd, and nfsd start (in that order.)

Try "showmount --exports <ip_address>". On my RedHat install,
at least, showmount is installed in /usr/sbin.

No - directory is fine.
