I agree 100%. I have both NFS and SMB servers / clients, and find
entirely less headaches associated with the SMB network clients than
the NFS ones. We have a campus license for the Solstice 3.1 NFS client
from Sun and I am still going to roll out SMB connections to faculty /
M$ apps / OS / etc... just work better in their own world ( although I
will admit that the Solstice package is very good ).
