Re:Limiting admin privileges

If I think this is what you want then all you would be is on the server that is exporting the 
NFS shares, 
remove 'no_root_squash' from the /etc/exports file on the shares you want to export

This will not even allow them to open a terminal from their home dir to su, but they will have 
to cd /tmp or somewhere else then 'su' in.

This is what I use on our servers here for critical data that i only want to export to certain 
users, but not allow someone to go made as root and delete stuff or nose at other users 
home directorys.

Hope this helps
