I have a working Samba 3 config. Everything was working fine until I
upgraded from glibc 2.3 to 2.4. I thought about going back to 2.3.6, but
I already have some other programs that want 2.4 so I would have to change
them as well.

OT: I can get OS X to mount my nfs drives if I use a insecure port, but
I can't read my directory cause it says I don't have permissions. Funny
all my Linux boxes work fine mounting my exported drives, but there is
something OS X doesn't like that I haven't figured out.

I have a copy of that (not installed) but I do have cygwin installed.

Rather use samba for some stuff, it's much nicer IMHO.
