You can tunnel NFS over ssh if you want to, but it might be rather 
slow, I don't know, I've never tried it.

You'd have to force rpc.mountd on the server to use a specific port 
and not portmappter though.  Then do somehting like this on the 

	ssh -N -L  5555:bldsvr-eth1:6666 faisvr &

where 5555 would be the host on the local system you want to connect 
over, and 6666 would be the port you've configured rpc.mountd to 
listen to on the FAI server.

There was an article about this in Linux Journal a few months back 
that might be worth finding.

	It may look like I'm just sitting here doing nothing,
   but I'm really actively waiting for all my problems to go away.

	 If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
