First export big partition on the linux box. For this you need an /etc/export
file. I'm not sure about the format of the file, this depends on the
linux distrib. 'man nfsd', 'man mountd', 'man exports' should give the
infos. There may be HOWTOs available for this too.
Next mount the linux's disk over NFS to the NetBSD box:
mount linux_box:/path_to_partition /mnt

Now, when you cd to /mnt, you'll use the linux's disk instead of the local
disk. You can extract syssrc.tgz and compile a kernel here.
