Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

See answers from your other thread.

NFS is a native UNIX filesystem. Samba is used if you have windows machines on the network. Also, given NFS's age, it may not be as secure as Samba, however there is a newer version of NFS coming out (according to a magazine article that I read.) I you want to network between Linux and Windows, you need to install samba.
