I've been having some major problems with a couple workstations on my

The problem is, for some reason, the network connection gets interrupted
periodically for a moment. I'm still investigating the physical connections
- but every time it happens, the X-Windows session locks up. I was hoping
Samba would provide a more fault-tolerant environment.
The problem you are seeing with nfs is probably because you are "hard
mounting" instead of "soft mounting". See the man page for nfs.
