hi at all

i'm using netatalk and samba as fileserver for different clients 

to create shares, that are visible and accessible for all clients (via 
afp/smb) i created a folder and made it public in all daemons (atalk, samba)

to get a better file handling i'm using the samba feature:

vfs object = netatalk

but there are still some problems
files that are created via afp (from mac os) and moved via smb (from 
windows) are broken, because there resourceforks aren't moved, too

okay, maybe it's not a samba problem, but my question is:

What does "vfs object = netatalk" really do?

plz help
