A samba server allows you to export directories from a non-Windows box such
that they look like shared Windows directories.
- Since NT already has the capability to share directories in the way that
Windows does it, there's no need to run a samba server on it.
- Since the Linux box will only be mounting samba shares, not exporting them,
it doesn't need to run a samba server either. It just needs a samba client,
such as a kernel built with SMB filesystem support.
