Could you explain more? I am looking at this current issue myself -- I have several systems that I want to synchronize (especially things such as rc files) and regularly backup (automatically?). However, on NFS, I can't guarantee that one of the systems will have internet connection 100% of the time (laptop) to access a remote system all the time (maybe a solution with periodic sychronization).
