Use NFS. Its almost certainly installed on your solaris box.
As root add the following line to a file called "/etc/dfs/dfstab"
share -F nfs -d "raid home dirs" /var/rob
Then as root try doing "exportfs -a" and then "exportfs"
It should list the /var/rob share.
Then go to the redhat box and try to mount.
As root do
mount solarisbox.example.com:/var/rob /srv/bob
I have probably forgotten something important, so let me know
