Not sure which config settings you're having problems with.  Usually
it's just been an issue with encrypted passwords when dealing with
accounts between all the differing systems.  But I regularly use smb
between the different os's,  and it works just right.

afp/netatalk setups are actually a pain at times when going between
all the systems, and I usually just go smb just fine.
