Actually the other way round; samba lets you turn your unix box into a
windows network compatible fileserver. There is a client (which would do
what you describe) for linux, called smbfs.

One of the service packs for NT includes a telnet daemon; install that and
you can telnet in to do simple things. It's of somewhat limited use, though,
since most NT programs try to do graphics and NT doesn't support X.
