If you are using Xen to host a development server on your workstation one of the problems is that it can be tricky to edit the files in your usual desktop environment. If you have Debian Etch and a stock kernel you can use the SSH filesystem to mount the Xen server's hard disk as a directory on your computer so that you can edit the files directly. This approach actually works really well.
sudo apt-get install sshfs
To mount the drive:
sudo modprobe fuse cd ~/Desktop sudo sshfs -o allow_other email@example.com:/ rms.dev
and to unmount:
cd ~/Desktop sudo umount rms.dev
