I don't know DAVE, but i have running an heterogenous network with Windows
(currently not, i needed the hardware as replacement for the failed server
hardware) and lots of MacOS clients, and much more lots of Unix clients (about
every unix you know :) served by a NetBSD-box with Samba, NFS and netatalk.
Besides the Unix boxes, especially the Macs fit very smooth into this network.
