A script to remove .DS_Store files on any *NIX Machine
Authored by: scottgfx on Nov 30, '03 06:19:27AM

After going through the O'Reilly book on Samba, I've set up Jaguar to not serve up the .DS_Store files. So from a Windows machine, I don't see the extra files when I browse to the Mac's share.

What I would like to find now, is a way to make Windows 2000 not allow ANY "dot" files to be written.

The only solution I've found is to either use the CP command or a program I just found on VersionTracker, called KopyMac.
