I did have the same problem, but I got it fixed, now I don't exactly
remember what I did, but IIRC it had to do with portmap, and the fstab
line that Marek has seems that it's missing something, this is what I
have in fstab:       /mp3    nfs     rw,hard,intr    0      0

And I also did edit the hosts.allow in both machines:

portmap mountd nfsd statd lockd :

Now, the line above, IIRC, is for the server. I have two machines in my
network that are servers so they have pretty much the same
configuration :)

There is a document on the Ubuntu site about this, googling I found:

I haven't been able to find the documentation I followed, though :(
