We use PC-NFS here between PCs and servers and it basically allows you
to access files on a Sun server as though it was just another disk
drive, e.g., E:.  The usual DOS commands can be used, e.g., files can
by "copy"ed back and forth from the PC to the Sun, etc.  I should note
again, however, that we have an excellent systems staff that sets up
and runs all of these things.  If one is looking for a growth industry
these days, it is definitely in systems programming and networking.
