Netatalk is more or less samba for Macs (using appletalk). I have several
servers using netatalk and samba on the same machine serving the same
shares and it works very well.  Since netatalk uses PAM, We installed the
"pam_smb" pam module so all mac users are authenticated against the
primary samba server(password server).
