The WFWG should still work with Samba.  The implementation is fairly 
straight forward for WFWG and should not have changed.  There is 
probably a difference between 'works' and 'taking bug requests'.

I suggest that you just set it up and see how it flies.   NFS is a dodgy 
way to go,  I have used hummingbord NFS to a Unix server and it was 
nothing but trouble.  Replaced with Samba and worked flawlessly for 2 
years without support.

You could replace the set up with a Novell emulator on the Linux box, 
less set up on the PC's then.
