Other Solutions

I don't know of any other solution besides Samba.  I'm 
running my installation on Solaris 2.6, and the installation 
was not that difficult.  I purchased the O'Reilly book 
"Using Samba", and followed the installation instructions.  
It took me all of 2 hours to get things up and running.  
Most of that was waiting for that compiler to finish
After that, I spent the next day setting up my current 
configuration.  Since then I have continued to tweak the 
smb.conf file as I learn.  

I do wonder.  Does your supervisor have other motives 
for not wanting Samba?
