Yea just trying to help.  Trying to throw things out there from what I've seen.  I think I'm going to go the easy route and use NFS ;)

Thanks guys, I'll keep checking and trying.  I needed to rebuild this linux server anyway so I'll try again with updated software.
But Windows isn't part of this.  like I originally said, the mountpoint for /var/lib/backuppc is an Iomega NAS, so I'm pretty sure there is some flavor of Linux/BSD/something under the hood.
 
Anyone else care to take a stab at this?
Thank you!

This is what I gathered from what I read last night. I'm sure CIFS
would work, maybe on a native linux filesystem? I'm just not going to
mess with NTFS for this.
