 Ok, I read the documentation, but I have some problems:

1) I use Samba-2.2.5 and Samba-2.2.8a, and I didn't get configure
VFS in them.
2) But before, I think that I don't know configure Samba to use
VFS. Is necessary make some diferent configuration ? I didn't find
something like "--with-vfs" in ./configure .
3) And if only in Samba-3 this recycle will be available, is there
an estimate about when Samba-3 will be a production version?

Thanks again!
