There is some room for more, but not much. Note that there are other
projects using the machine, so I'd like to leave a couple hundred megs
free in case they suddenly need to use them.

Do you have any idea how many attacks I've had on port 111 in the past
year? I'm glad I'm not running a real portmapper on my machines (it's
a trap, when there's something there at all). I can tell you a dozen
different buffer overflows, each of which works against a different
version of portmapper.

In my copious free time, I have been looking into compiling cfs with a
hardcoded udp port, so it will work locally without requiring a portmapper.
But I don't think this maps over very well to the nfs problem.

I think the correct solution, when you guys need more space, is to move
things over to belegost.

I think you guys should try to get more popular, and find a site that has
a couple gigs free for you, if you want to store an entire redhat
distribution plus new packages. :) For instance, if you get farther along
in your project, sunsite might be amenable......
