That's because you missed the point in addition to changing the examples 
dashes to underscores.

For example:
[root at coyote linux-2.6.24-rc3]# showmount -e  coyote
Export list for coyote:
/ coyote.coyote.den

which says that the machine called coyote.coyote.den, a purely local name on 
my own network, is exporting the whole / tree.  In this case I only used its 
alias in the hosts file.

Grok it now?
