Hi, Jim--

NFS is an entirely reasonable choice for filesharing against OS X; netatalk

What about the resource fork of the mac files. Does NFS provide a transparent way to preserve the resource fork?

For some definitions of "transparent". If the client uses the AppleDouble format, that wraps the resource fork and works fine against a normal NFS server. Some Mac NFS implementations do that, some don't.

Very interesting, thanks! I would like to try this solution. Can you give me more info, suggestions, links etc?
