"You can have Linux emulate other operating systems, so that
their respective clients can log into it. For example, you can
configure Samba and have Windows clients log into it. You can
configure NFS and connect it to other Linux or Unix machines.
You can also configure it to act as a NetWare server, so that
Windows machines running NetWare clients can access it. Clients
would consider it another NetWare server and be able to do file and
printer sharing. This is a good solution if you have a NetWare
