Network Amiga

As I'm an avid fan of playing games in front of my TV, I'm trying to set up my Amiga close to it.
Now, as my a1200 HD is a mere 0.5Gigs, I was wondering whether someone has already tried linking his Amiga to a network, and having some games installed on (a partition of?) his PC's HD. Would it be possible to launch and run these games from the Amiga, while accessing your PC's HD?

Well, I hooked up my 1200er to my Network but only for surfing purposes, I never had any games installed on a network drive, but I think it should be possible without any problems, you may use PC2Amiga for this, since it mounts your PC HDs on your Amiga

WHDLoad problems when networking

I noticed that when I run network on my amiga (via MIAMI and a PCMCIA network card) WHDLoad tends to freeze in the middle of the game quite often (altough you can still quit it with its quit key sometimes)... this happens with every game I tried. If I boot without the network everything is fine and dandy.
This might be only the problem with my setup, but it really disabled me from installing stuff on my pc drive.
