Quick and dirty is to have a Linux box standing between the PC and the MAC,
share the MAC files out to the Linux box, and have the Linux box re-share
them out to the PC. Do the same thing, in reverse, to let MACs see the PC's
file shares. The Linux box thus becomes the router/translator/files-server.
This can also be done for Netware.
Caldera Open-Linux Standard has all you need for this, including MAC,
Netware, and Samba interfaces, built-in.
Send me private e-mail and we can work out a price, I'm a Caldera VAR.
