I have a unix computer and a PC computer.
I want to mount a drive in the PC onto a unix directory.
What do I need to do in the unix side to allow this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Assuming you mean a PC running windows, and you already have done the proper means to set up NFS and exported the directory you want to share, you
Enable the NFS Client
Enter the share name on the form host:/share , e.g.
(Note that the windows nfs client doesn't support NFSv4)
I assume by PC you mean a computer that is running a flavor of Windows... If this is the case, you need to "share" this drive on the network on your Windows PC, setup a workgroup, and give the drive a shared name.
Then, you need to install a Samba client on the Unix machine. Samba is the protocol most commonly used for Unix computers to mount shared Windows network drives. If you provide some more information on the two PCs, I could provide more detail.
