If I can add more to that...
It needs to be accessible from both OS 9.x, 10.x and possibly (maybe) from Windows.
So, for me Samba seems like the best option since all three can access Samba.
Netatalk seems to have the most elegant solution of file naming but that isn't accessible from Windows unless I have both Netatalk and Samba running on the same machine sharing the same directory. (which I currently do)
I guess you need to see my other post to understand.
The whole "test / sedrs \ sfg" and "test :2f sedrs \ sfg" thing.

They use a mixture of OS 9.x (primary Mac OS they use) and 10.x.
So NFS is probably out of the question.

\ and /)
as thought about your problem....
did you try nfs or ssh for this file types,
as your users use mac os 10 this maybe a possible solution,
but i am nearly sure that windows will fail to open it , if your try to
catch them afterwards from a win client.
but perhaps its a workaround
