I've purchased a new emac with OSX 10.3.
It's soon to arrive and so I'm thinking about a good way of interacting the emac - which will be my main desktop - with my 5.2.1 server.
Until now I used a windows laptop with xp and the files where shared with samba.
So I thought that using an unixoid os would bring some advantages :-)
I think that I'll use hfs+ on the emac.
I've read about the hfs and hfs+ port but I doesn't want to take a risk.

The freebsd server should act as mail and news-server and also as file server.
Do I have to put the data on a fat32-slice?


If I setup a nfs-mount on the freebsd server and copy data from OSX to it, is the data readable from Freebsd without the hfs port?


A computer only needs filesystem support for drives that are physically mounted in it. When two machines talk across a network, they transfer data using network protocols, not mutual filesystem support.

But it might also be worth considering installing the net/netatalk port. That way, the mac will be able to mount a network share on its desktop and you'll be able to use it just like the local hard drive.
