On the server who own the filesystem that you want to mount from, you need to export that filesystem, then on the other server create a directory to be used as a mount point and then mount it using this syntax:
mount serverfrom:/mount-point /local-mount-directory.

If you tell me what is your o/s, I could guide you step be step.
