I understand that samba is a little more secure than NFS.  But if you
really want an easy solution, try fuse-sshfs:

http://fedoraproject.org/extras/4/i386/repodata/repoview/fuse-
sshfs-0-1.2-3.fc4.html

It's implemented in user space and is as easy as a login.  Your UID's do
not need to be the same on other machines, like with NFS.  You just need
a login, and then you can mount the directory(s).  There's no messing
around with root controlled files as in NFS/Samba.  The implementation
is fast, easy, and I think it's more secure than either NFS or Samba.
