I use macfuse to do this, more specifically sshfs. It's a bit  
annoying if you don't have a good network connection to the other  
host. But for the most part it works well. I have had some issues  
with early versions of solaris and SSHFS though.

If you are going to go this route, check out MacFusion on macupdate,  
it's a gui for macfuse essentially.
