I am in the process of redesigning my organization's network.  And,  
since we will be using mostly Macintosh OS X clients, I am considering  
using NFS.  However, I will need the ability to perform user/group  
authentication since users may not always log in from the same PC.

Essentially, each user has a home directory which only they, and  
possibly their secretary, needs to have access to.  And, we have  
directories which groups of people need access to.

 From the reading I have done this evening, my understanding is NFSv4  
will meet all of these needs.  Is this correct?  And, is there a  
better way to accomplish this?

Thanks,


Jay
