Thanks for responding, you should know the answer to a few newbie questions.
1) "netatalk" is totally the same as appletalk? It comes as part of RedHat
2) Have you heard of "DAVE" the guy at my ISP (erols.com) said he uses DAVE
($149 per Macintosh), "DAVE" websites claim full Samba(Linux) compability.
But apparently "DAVE" is unnecessary. DAVE is supposed to be "the Mac
file-share to MS-Win" standard, at least according to DAVE. (No relation to
3) What does the final outcome look like on a Samba share with Macs and
Redhar and Windows. Can you set up file explorers on on the Linux to look at
the oters and vice-versa.
Now I realize the network you described is not as small as what I am looking
at so your interests probably didn't reach to this question but maybe you
4) Another very esoteric question: If you have a dialup 56K modem on one
machine, can you somehow get the samba to use the dialup from a different
machine. Or better, get a multi-plexing kind of thing going so that for
instance one machine can be handling email simultaneous to another machine
surfing all on the same dial-up.
WE ARE AN EXTREMELY SMALL SHOP MAYBE TWO OR THREE PEOPLE IN THERE ALL DAY SO
INCESTUOUS USE OF A SINGLE DIAL-UP MODEM IS INTERESTING TO US.
