I am running Win2003 Enterprise and most of my clients are
The two options I've used are Samba from the Mac side and File
Services for Mac from the Server side.
Samba is fast but looses some of the file conventions needed by
the Mac OS ie. Fonts copied to the server cannot be opened with
File Services for Mac is slower and has file namlength limitations,
however it maintains the file conventions required by the Macs.
Hope its not too late.
