	FreeBSD Question Answerer-
	First of all thank you for your help and time.  I have a question about
running a Samba server where the server is a FreeBSD machine and the client
is a Macintosh ibook running max os X. The client would have a wireless PC
card connection that runs through the same bridge as the server.   Can the
client and the server share files and devices with this setup?  I was also
wondering about how Samba was configured, is it through the /etc/exports
file or is it done differently?  Also is Samba in the ports packages tree?
Also does Samba allow computers to share devices?  Could i have a server
with a DVD-ROM, and watch DVDs on a client?  Also how are shared files
stored on a Samba network, does the server store them all and they are all
accessible to the clients, or does the machine where the file was made store
it and it's accessible to all the clients?  Also i was going to RAID
together three SCSI harddrives in the server and also have one seperate IDE
harddrive.  The three SCSIs will store FreeBSD and be the storage for the
Samba server, and the IDE will run DOS.  Will the FreeBSD boot manager
recognize DOS even though it is on another harddrive, or will i have to boot
to it manually through the BIOS? Thanks and e-mail me back.
