Yes, NFS lets you share files without worrying about whether the local
filesystem is HFS+, UFS, or anything else. If you've already gotten
Samba working, you could use that to share files instead of setting up
NFS: both work fine, but Samba filesharing might work a little better
since the Finder supports it a little more gracefully...
