NFS exporting smbfs mount?

    It looks like we might be faced with the necessity of mounting a CIFS
    filesystem on a linux box and then exporting that mount over NFS to
    various Solaris machines. (We've tried using Sharity on the Solaris
    clients, but it is just not up to snuff for reasons I won't go into.)
    Searching google, I've seen random mailing list posts that make me think
    this is possible, but rpc.mountd and rpc.nfsd on the box I'm testing on
    (running a 2.6.3 Mandrake kernel) don't allow re-exporting.

    So my question: do other distros use these same rpc.mountd and rpc.nfsd
    daemons? (We're not married to a distribution for this box.) Or does
    someone have replacements I can use on a linux box that will allow the

    Or have I been misled and such a thing (NFS-exporting a mounted CIFS fs,
    either as smbfs or, preferably, cifs) is simply not possible?

    Thanks for any and all help.
