i have a winXP network, and need a file server that is cheap and scalable.
I find 2000 server and the like to be too expensive, so am looking into linux.
1- how does linux deal with the new windows xp features, such as folder-icons?
I think Samba only emulates a win NT server.
I do not know if windows NT support those folder-icons, but I've seen that a folder loses its icon when you copy it to a share on a samba server.
2-It is Samba the only file server for linux?
