Hello Richard,

I really don't mind if you call the thing I am looking for a hardlink or a
chicken. And I am really not sticking to creating them by ln or mount or just
about anything else. I am, too, not bound to making them permanent on the
media. All I really want to do is to _export_ them via nfs.
And guys, looking at mount -bind makes me think someone else (before poor me)
needed just about the same thing.
So, instead of constantly feeding my bad conscience, can some kind soul explain
the possibilities to make "mount -bind/rbind" work over a network fs of some
flavor, please?


PS: if you ever want to find out what *nix people are carrying guns, just enter
the room and cry out loud "directory hardlinks to the left!"
