If you are staying current with DSL versions, I find the easiest way to "mount" remote directories is to use sshfs.
Say machine 1 is the "server" and machine 2 is the "client"
On machine one:
Setup password for user root
start ssh either from the control panel or at boot time with boot option ssh
On machine 2:
sudo modprobe fuse or use the boot time option fuse
Then to mount machine1's /tmp directory on machine2 you can do something like this
sudo sshfs root@machine1_ip:/tmp /mnt/test
You will be prompted for root's password on machine1
If successful then on machine2 you can access machine1 /tmp by accessing /mnt/test
Best to google sshfs for all the full details and options available.
