    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.
