Sorry, another question ...

I think the docs seem to infer the answer is yes, but can you confirm 
that it's 'safe' to add msdfs support to an existing server and 
create a test share - without breaking existing shares ?

I'm still on 2.2.8a if it makes any difference - for the moment I'm 
stuck with an 'integrated' (SLOX 4.1) system where it would create 
too many 'support issues' to try and upgrade.
