First the basics, you've really got three main options for the file
- NFS (unix standard)
- SMB (Windows standard)
- AFP (MacOS standard)
Under ubuntu, you would implement these by installing the
'nfs-kernel-server', 'samba', or 'netatalk' packages.
Samba is probably the most versatile since Apple touts the SMB suport in
MacOS X and it would give you the future ability to support Windows
clients as well.
Also take a look at the mdnsresponder package. With a bit of config
magic, it should be possible to have this all automagically work under
