should be simple. you can either cross connect the two machines secondary
interfaces or plug each interface into a seperate VLAN/switch/hub.
setup the ip's on each machine and hosts/dns entries as needed. verify
connectivity via ping etc between the hosts.
setup NFS as normal but mount via the private VLAN. so if hosta and hostb
are primary and hosta-priv and hostb-priv are the new private network links
your mount scenario would be:
on host a: mount hostb-priv:/export /export
on host b: mount hosta-priv:/export /export
etc etc etc.
