Eric,

I have to second Shawn and say that I used Jim's directions for the OS X part. Makes use of NFS. You lose resource forks by storing stuff on non-HFS(+) formatted drives, but unless your users are using a lot of Classic apps, that shouldn't be too great a problem.  If OTOH your users do have a lot of Classic apps that rely on the resource for to know what app opens a particular document, then it may be worthwhile to try to get something going with Netatalk. I believe that the latest Netatalk actually does AFP rather than Appletalk, so it's not like the OS X machines will have to have Appletalk turned on.

I used David and Matt's Samba/LDAP script to back when it was made for FC3. I'm really only using the LDAP part since that particular school is all Mac, but it works great.

Peace,
Jimmy
