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.
