Remote Mounting? (Mount remote folder on local filesystem)

I am running Mandrake 9.1 at home. I have an account on a Linux cluster at school.

I'm root at home, not on the cluster.

What I want to do is mount my home directory on the cluster on my local box. I.e., access my cluster folders as if they were local.

Is this possible? As I said, I'm not root on the cluster. But for what it is worth I have lots of privileges (most commands work, no quota, etc.)

This would be a GREAT help to me. Thanks for any input.

If nfs is running, you could simply export your folder and mount it using nfs. I believe!
