I want to use Linux as the network software at my office
(35 users). We run Foxpro applications programmes off the server configured solely as a data server. All the applications programs are on the the individual workstations. REliability aand stability is what i am looking for in a network. Can LInux and Foxpro work together ? I am advises that setting up the NFS partition will affect the speed of the network tremendously.

I would suggest using Samba (Microsoft type networking) this will allow you to use MS client on your PC's and let you map drives / printers etc. It will also allow you to login as if it was an NT server and run login scripts etc.
