i figured that if you use filesystems and protocols most native to the 
mac os you´ll get the best results in stability on the client side, 
that´s why i thought of HFS. but ext4 seems to do the job well.
i´ll definitely checkout samba too. do you also serve homedirs to them? 
had any issues?

Thanks,
Wessel

  Sorry it didn't work out for you. Linus, for one, has a pretty poor 
opinion of HFS in general.....and I'm not thrilled with it myself, due 
to some issues I had with Tiger on a PowerMac G4 and heavily corrupted 
filesystems, journaled or not. And I have some of the 'rescue' tools 
like DiskWarrior, and I've still lost some data. Hopefully your 
experience with ext4 will work out better. Mac OS X does very well with 
SMB/CIFS shares, too, if AppleTalk doesn't work out for you. (I run Mac 
OS X here in a few areas, and even Tiger works well with a Samba server, 
but I haven't tried any ACL's with it).
