Should be able to. The local fileserver (an older linux box) has about
~50G of space useable. It will need a kernel upgrade at some point in
time, but we'll see if NFS works.
Hmm... getting "rpc_bind to nfs on server". Both boxes I tried are
linux, one is older (RH 6.1) and one is newer (SuSE 8.0). Have been
needing to upgrade their kernels anyway. Guess that's next on the adgenda!
