Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe SAMBA supports 
AppleShare in the say MacOS Services for NT does.  From my 
experience, the service allows you to create an additional share on 
an NT box, that shares to an Appleshare network.  Since Macs have a 
different scheme for setting share permissions, NT just creates a 
whole new share.  I don't remember exact issues, but I know it was a 
nightmare and getting DAVE was a much better solution.
