    Try this link.

    Also see the help file on the server. They are very good. Whitepaper I am not sure if there is a dedicated one but to fully understand try reading the "Branch Office Deployment Guide" for Windows 2000 or 2003. This whitepaper discusses this.

    The above white papers are useful - I have setup a DFS and found the literature on it lacking.  I would suggest once you have the DFS setup in a testing environment you mess with permissions and look at the effects on the OUTLOG as you will need to be happy that the files are passing across correctly.  MS have a DFS support tool called 'ntfrsutil' which can be used to help diagnose problems.
