I am using 386/ix 2.0.2 with the vendor's NFS, with a client running PC-NFS.
It works reliably.  Make sure you have 8 meg on the Unix box or it'll swap
too much.

PC-NFS includes rsh, so it should be pretty straightforward to write some
shell scripts to handle it.  On the other hand, if all of the users are
on DOS machines, PC-NFS is overkill and you would probably be happier with
a DOS network (3com or Novell) and Polytron's PVCS which is a DOS
reimplementation of RCS.
