Unfortunately, I can't change the server. It's a server for our marketing
department, and they like it the way it is.

Not exactly the same as you are trying to do here but I have in the past run
both netatalk and samba on the same FBSD machine to share the same FS
between apple and winblows clients. Was pretty stable for a couple of years
and then I didn't need to do that anymore so I uninstalled netatalk. Can you
move the FS to a FBSD box ? If so that would be my suggestion.
