What I have learned is that the droboshare is a samba appliance so you
get only one share username password but if partition the drobo with a
file system that the oses can read you can use the storage by multiple
oses. Here I am thinking ntfs since linux can do ntfs but windows
can't do ext3, I am clueless about macs but can't afford them anyway.
