how to access Symbolics CD-ROM from Unix host via NFS?

now i have a cd-rom on lisphost that i can access from any lisp
machine (using NFILE or whatever), using for example:
show directory lisphost|cdrom1:>*
how can i access the cd-rom from Unix, since variations on:
mount -t nfs lisphost:X /unix-dir
don't work, where X has been:
and all sorts of other likely combinations?
I don't think it can be done, at least not in Genera 8.1. Looking at
the NFS Server system, I see NFS-LMFS.LISP and NFS-FEPFS.LISP, which
suggests that the NFS server needs special-case code to handle
particular file system types; it doesn't do all its work through the
generic file system interface. I see no NFS-CDROMFS.LISP.
Also, despite the use of Flavors to implement the LMFS and FEPFS
interfaces, the "generic" part of the NFS Server has stuff like:
(fs:fep-pathname (send (send pathname :host) :unit)))
in a number of places. So much for OO programming....
