    Is this simply impossible?  No one's replied, or suggested another 
alternative...  Am I asking on the wrong list perhaps?

  Hi Folks.  I'm trying to setup Samba and having a bit of a 
problem...  However, I'm not sure if it's a Samba issue, or NFS issue.  
The setup is as follows:

  Server 1  --> exports /storage/ftpusers
     In that folder, there are numerous user folders that are owned by 
each specific user.

  Server 2  --> nfs mounts server1:/storage/ftpusers as /mnt/ftpusers
     At the same time, it also has /mnt/ftpusers setup to be shared 
through Samba as follows:

     comment = Client FTP
     browseable = yes
     writable = yes
     path = /mnt/ftpusers
     guest ok = yes
     public = yes
     read only = no

  Server 3 (which is a windows box) will then get onto //server2/ftpusers

  The problem I'm having is that I can't see/write anything inside any 
of the user folders that's within /ftpusers from the windows box.  My 
guess is because the WinBox accesses it as a guest user, where the 
folder are owned by real users.  I need to be able to do this so we can 
place files for our clients into their respective folders (from within 
our network - hence the convoluted way of doing things.)
