I have a split lan between several Macs (powermacs) and Linux
systems. I have files that are needed by both platforms. Currently
I have a Mac that is running as a fileshare machine which works
great for the Macs on the lan, but not for Linux. (problems
mounting appletalk volumes read/write etc).
I was thinking about moving the raid array over to a Linux box
and then run macNFS on my macs (to mount NFS volumes on the mac)
BUT I have a concern with the Mac files. Can Linux handle the
data/resource forks of Mac files? Is this evena problem? Say I
have one logical volume that is an application volume (has all
the programs on it for the mac) can I easily RUN those programs
even though they are on an NFS volume? (nothing will get corrupted?)
Any insights would be helpful.
