>Stacker can't coexist with network drivers for PC-NFS. It gives an error:

>(but will lack Network File System NFS)

 We are using stacker2.0 with Interdrive an NFS for the pc from FTP
software which uses the SUN PCNFS authorization daemon on the SUN.
(They send the source with the package) and it works fine. No
problems with stacker at all. We run windows 3.1 on the pc's and
even put large window programs on the SUN disk drives because even with
stacker on our pc drives we can not fit everything.
