It seems odd in general to use samba between unix-type machines
instead of nfs - or just using ssh, remote X, or freenx to log into
the machine that has the disk space. Can you use nfs instead (you can
still share the same space with samba if there are also windows
clients) ?

Linux has a cifs mount option that preserves more of the unix
semantics than smb, but I don't know if that exists in freebsd.
