Unix based PC networking

We will be implementing a fairly large, multi-server/multi-site network.

Systems to be networked include PC's (>100) and several unix systems (~6).
The PC's need access to file servers, 3270 gateways, and direct access
to other unix systems on the network.

We want a unix-based network OS and are currently looking at Banyan Vines
to run on a 386 box or a Banyan server.

Does anyone have any experience to share regarding Vines or similar products?

Any input regarding Token Ring vs. Ethernet would also be appreciated.

Please reply via E-Mail and I will post a summary.
