With the price of ethernet cards so cheap now, it's the only way to go.
For this purpose, pcnfs works just fine.
For the DOS side, you will need the appropriate packet driver for your
particular network card, and an nfs client. Go to the Simtel archive, the
nfs directory. I have used xfs186.zip. This is shareware; perhaps there
are other sources that are free.
For the FreeBSD side, run the pcnfsd daemon. Refer to the usual
documentation for configuration. You will export directories off your
FreeBSD box that will be just like drive letters on your DOS machine.
As with everything about FreeBSD, this is just damn sweet!
