It would be great if this would work. I meant to try it but I don't
know enough about NFS yet.
If you want to try another solution, you can use coLinux as an
NFS server. I went as far as setting it up as an NFS server on my
pc, but I got sidetracked :) and never got to actually plugging my
cube into it.
I think you'll have an easier time with coLinux. Just remember
to use bridged networking.
