I can't see how to do that. We currently have a single box S4 which 
serves both the Linux and Windows clients. The files are in the same 
folders on the same machine. S4 serves the Win boxes (ntvfs/cifs I 
think) and nfs the Linux machines.

How would I get a separate s3 fileserver to do the same job? If that can 
be done then can we still keep nfs for our Linux clients? Presumably on 
the same box as the s3 fileserver?

Server1: S4 AD DC
Server2: s3 and nfs fileserver joined to Server1 domain

Cheers and thanks for your time,
