I'm not quite sure what you mean. You can certainly use NFS to mount the filesystem from one onto another. Does that answer your question?

Yes. Read up on "NFS". It stands for "Networked File System" and it's basically a way for you to transparently mount filesystems over the network, as if they were a CD ROM or a harddrive. Works like a charm and very stable (it's been around forever).

Good luck!

Just be careful if the same file might be accessed simultaneously by multiple progs on both systems.
NFS is stateless and not good at handling that sometimes.
