How do I mount using the command line in Mac OS 10.3 so the mount appears on the desktop?

Where do I need to add to make it automount everytime the system starts?

I tried the following, but I get an error that the that the directory does not exist.

sudo mount nfsserver:/exported/path /private/mnt

I tried creating the /private/mnt dir, I can access the content when I mount in the /private/mnt dir, but it does not show up on the desktop. Please show me what to do to get this to work. I do not want to use the finder to connect to the nfs share.
