Hierarchical mounts and shares with nfs ?



We've got a server that we use for backups.   We created a directory on
that server called 'backup' and shared it via nfs.  Users copy stuff
that they want to backup to that drive.  This all works very well.  

However, the hard drive became full.  I added a second hard drive to the
machine and mounted it via an entry in fstab.  It mounts to
backup/stuff.  It all works fine on the server, but on the workstations
the stuff directory appears empty.  It doesn't have the files that the
2nd drive on the server has.  

ie 
- on the server, backup/stuff has files in it, the files from the
mounted hard drive. 

- on the workstations, backup/stuff is empty.  None of the files from
the mounted hard drive are visible. 

Is there a special nfs setting to allow child mounted drives to appear
in a shared directory on a client machine ?
