Make sure you reboot the clients after enabling dfs
support on the Samba server since the client will
cache information about dfs referrals.  There is a
win32 tool for clearing the cache as well buit I
don't remember what it is right now.

I would also test 3.0.10 since there were some
dfs bugs in the past.  Check the release notes
for details.

And finally I have one report of Windows XP sp2
breaking Samba's dfs support but I have not
confirmed that yet.

cheers, jerry
