That 127... address is "localhost", meaning MFE thinks your database 
is located on the Mac. I'm not running MFE on the machine I'm typing 
on right now, but if the setup menus don't set this properly, you can 
try editing the mysql.txt file manually. IIRC, it's in your ~ 
directory, and may actually start with '.' (i.e.: .mysql.txt). It 
gets created the first time you run MFE.

Most likely, you need to use "sudo mount". Otherwise, the mount point 
is created as the user you run the command with, which most likely is 
not permitted to mount the volume (according to the /etc/exports on 
the other machine.) Note that, in this case, a username match isn't 
enough to allow something other than root to mount; the UIDs of the 
non-root account have to be the same between your Mac and the Linux
