if this is on a single system then just mount the other partitions like any other on your system. If you don't know which ones they are, the output of "fdisk -l" should help you. if it's on a different system and you mean to create this over a network then you need to check out nfs.

Yes, it's very possible.

You can either use Samba (I wouldn't; mostly for Windows machines to connect to Linux systems), or use NFS (Better way to go for linux-to-linux).

Check out the NFS how to here:

http://nfs.sourceforge.net/nfs-howto/

There's lots of other distro-specific information that can be found on Google.
