Yup, seems the way to go. If you make
/dev/hdb1 /lab
/dev/hdb2 /lab/lab_mac
exporting only /lab and not /lab/lab_mac in NFS is a bit more
complicated as you have to excluse /lab/lab_mac. Regarding NFS, I prefer
to keep it as simple as possible - there are enough ways it doesn't work
to avoid adding some more :o)
