already!)

Now.. this is interesting. I reckon, further digging will get me
write/read access too.
Currently using Satish's SSH Port Forwarding to mount the share. It's
still Slow. (I have no idea how to quantify this. Anyone has any clue?)

One other thing, Since it's doing port forwarding, I realise that the
xterm window which is doing the ssh -C -N command must stay open. it's a
nuisance, but hey, it works.
