sharing out nfs mounted filesystems with samba

We have a few Solaris boxes each with Sun A1000 raid boxes attached.  We
currently share these RAIDS to windoze boxes via a pc automounter.  I
would obviously prefer to switch this over to samba.  My question is,
if I set up a system with GB ethernet, and nfs mounted each filesystem I
wanted to share, and _then_ shared those out to the PC's via samba, would
I suffer any major performance issues?  Does samba handle sharing nfs
mounted filesystems ok?  I know this is adding an extra hop, will this
affect performance?  Any opinions would be appreciated.
