Mount remote filesystem on Ubuntu Feisty using SSH

First install the ssh filesystem:
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install sshfs

Create a mount point for the remote computer and make yourself owner:
sudo mkdir /media/remote_computer_name
sudo chown andy /media/remote_computer_name

sudo adduser andy fuse

Mount the remote computer:
sshfs /media/remote_computer_name/
