Sounds like you want the visual bell HOWTO:

Uh, scary, that shouldn't happen.

ATS0L0 ?

Right; depends on your kernel version, since the network filtering stuff
has changed somewhat frequently. If you're using ipchains, you want to
do something like this on your gateway:
      /sbin/ipchains -A forward -s -d -j MASQ

Of course, you'll need to change the first bit depending on the setup of
your internal network.
I can't remember how to speak ipfwadm, I'm afraid.

I've used NFS in the past for this (mount /home shared, for instance,
and I also had an NFS rooted machine, which was tremendous fun) and I've
also heard good things about Coda.

Everything can be filed under "miscellaneous".
