Hi Brad, Samba is a SMB/CIFS server for FreeBSD, Linux, and the many other Unixes & Unix-Like OSes out there. It's analogous to NetServer on the AS/400, it allows you to define shared disks or directories that will appear in Windows' Network Neighborhood. Basically, it lets my FreeBSD box act like an NT server. Except that it's free. And it's waaaay more robust and better performing than the OS/400 NetServer.
