Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it.

I'm not a security guru either, so this is probably a dumb question,
but don't you still have the same problems with services like NFS that
you had before?  If I use IPsec to encrypt the traffic between a linux
box and an openbsd box, and if they're sharing files with NFS, and if
the linux box gets cracked, doesn't that put my openbsd box in danger?
