'network exporting' is precisely what I would like to do, since I have very 
little more space on my xen server for anything more than proof of concept 
vms, and I have so much space now on my SuSE system. My experience with nfs 3 
or 4 is you can only export previously mounted portions of the disk, which 
means effectively you have nfs -> file backed store -> /dev/mapper/imagefile, 
and I was hoping to remove some of the overhead.

By the way, I found the following urls on the OpenSuSE wiki, but nothing on 
gnbd or ataoe. I suppose I can google for the their home pages, but I'm not 
looking to pioneer technology on SuSE that hasn't been trod elsewhere :-;
