can't believe how widely used NFS is, because it is the source of
endless problems for me. I've never seen it work with any kind of

actually seems to show up correctly on the other side :-).
I've had the opposite. Samba stalling and transferring at a rate slower
than I can retype a file. Samba never managing to connect to the other
side. The hassles of manually setting up each user. The hassles of
file permissions and ownership getting screwed up in transit. Compared
to NFS working without pain.
Though, I have to say that my painless NFS server is on a FC4 machine,
and that works fine. I've found I've had to manually mess with
firewalling to get it to work through anything higher than FC4.
I'm surprised you don't need to with FC4. It's actually fairly simple.

I chose the ports that were actually in use, but left it its own devices
it can choose ports of other servers yet to start. CPUS for example.
