a quick look at the share functions of the NAS only revealed "windows 
share", "Apple", FTP and Backup as options.  NSF may be hidden somewhere

I need to look into this further but I can tell you that simply pulling a file 
or directory over in Konquerer (just did that) transfers the time stamp of 
the files and the directories just fine and dandy!!!

This is not a filesysystem problem!
