Slight correction... AFAIK, NFS does not "combine" disparate 
filesystems.  All NFS does it allow you to export a filesystem or 
portion of a filesystem from one system, and mount the exported 
filesystem on another machine on the network.  It's similar to the way 
you'd use Samba (or Windows) shares.
