Win95 Connectivity with Samba/SMB

Samba is a package which allows you to access your Linux/SGI/Solaris box from a client which is running WfW v3.x, Win95 or WinNT as it would a normal network drive. If you have couple of machines in your room and one is an Ultra-New-PII- With-All-Kind-Of-Gizmos and the other is an old 486 for example, you can setup your 486 to act as a server so you can browse it from your other machine.
