I thought NFS was mostly for sharing files on UNIX systems although you can 
find M$ and MIntosh versions. I also thought Samba was the de facto M$ tool 
but Linux has it an can use it against M$ or Linux machines. (Please correct 
or update my knowledge if needed)

So why does the O.P. need both SMB and NFS?
