I am running Mandrake 8.0
I am installing & upgrading to Samba 3.0.28
I just finished reading IBM's Redbook "Open Your
Windows with Samba on Linux" (redp3780). I'd like to
know, what is the best configuration between SMB/CIFS
& DFS, in a Linux (servers) & Windows
(clients/workstations) network. Even though I read the
Redbook, it still not clear as to which configuration
I should choose.

Let me know...

Thank you,
