Is there no other way to mount the drive somehow and still have the clients
access it over the fast link instead of going over the slow link main site?
I hoped not having to install another server :)

Maybe other solutions. It would be great if users authenticated at the main
site over the slow link, but still be able to access resources local over
the fast link.  

Thanks for the fast replies so far!
