[K12OSN] Supporting Macs on a Linux server

I just received this question from a school superintendent -- the real school
policy setter -- asking about experience supporting Mac workstations on a Linux
server. I use samba to support wintel boxes, but have only read about Netatalk
until now. Could experienced users please respond?

Here's the question, obviously backed up by a tech person who's done the basic

"If you do use Linux, do  you use it in a Macintosh environment and how do
you find the Netatalk solution working on your network for older boxes
versus OS X? Do you use Red Hat or YellowDog or what ever distribution?

Do any of you find the NFS a good solution with Mac OS X or is it still
better for your school to still run an AppleTalk protocol versus TCP/IP? "
