What is interesting on this note, is that there is a free client, and it
seems to work fairly well, for BeOS.

I think the problem is with the way I've got the Proxies set up. I can
mount the drive on my OpenBSD box, but can't access it, can't even see it
when I do a 'df' (that is a seriously wierd experience). I can't even
mount it on my Linux box. I'm wondering how it will react to one of the
Solaris boxes, but haven't booted one yet.

I also can't figure out how to export a directory instead of an entire
disk, it doesn't even look to be possible. I'd really like to export
DKA200:[PCTMP], instead of DKA200: since that's what's served up via
AppleTalk and Samba.
