One quick caveat - properly unmount volumes when rebooting and such.  Due 
to one of those things that somehow grew beyond its original intent, we 
had a network of about 15 machines all mounting each other.  NFS 
chokes when a mount it expects to be there, isnt.  it takes it several 
minutes to give up.  One machine rebooting in such a big spiderweb cluster 
can cause massive problems without proper attention to cleanly unmounting 
and remounting shares.  And 'cascading' is usually such a lovely word...


 You might try an NFS mount between the too.
 mount_nfs -L server:/path /local/path
