For example, I have a server with samba and AFS on it serving multiple
clients (linux and nt).
where interfaces are through nt->samba and linux->afs.
My doubts are

1. At the server level how the requests are processed? 
   Is it some thing like below.

	client request

	     Samba	server 
  Under lying unix file system.

	Is the above correct?

2. If so, do every linux client request should travel through the samba
server interface to the 	afs interface?
