Take a look at the samba-vscan project, which you can have do on-access
scanning for you via samba (VFS modules).
(you should eb able to find it quite easily searching on freshmeat.net)
I have tested it with sophos (see
RPMs for Mandrake 8.2).
There are a number of supported scanners, including kaspersky, trend,
etc, but IIRC, McAfee it not supported.
