if you run netatalk and samba then you can have both types of clients
accessing the same fileset.
However - you do open yourself up to locking problems...
(which you have anyway with dave)

You'll need to be sure the either 
clients don't try to access the same files at the same time 
turn off oplocking and set share modes = no
on the samba shares.

I don't know how locking works on netatalk shares

copying via a windows machine may work because dave(or samba) is
broken in such a way that dave can talk to windows but not to samba.
