Seconded...  "neat".

I'll have to play with this too!  Debian users may want to take note of bug
#325993 before installing the fuse-utils package.

NFS is a breeze to set up.  I couldn't imagine a home network without it.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work well with VFAT/NTFS partitions.  So if your
server has a C or D drive that you'd like to share with other systems,
you'll have to find some way to export the directories other than NFS.
