Or you could just make the directory on the server an NFS export and
have the OSX machines mount it at boot over the network as if it was a
local drive. Then if you copy the file via the finder then it WILL copy
everything that's needed. If your using ftp or scp then just have the
person use stuffit to compress the files together and this will get
everything that's needed to make the files usable on any other Mac.
