Firstly, figure out if it's been done before - and look at what your
platform will support.  Implementing an SMB server from scratch is a
task that will take a *long* time.  You cannot go to LANMAN1 or earlier,
they don't support long filenames.  

Samba has been ported to a large number of environments, including
recently to some really weird embedded 'almost POSIX' os.  The changes
required were quite minor, much to my surprise.

So your options are LANMAN2 or NT1.

See http://www.ubiqx.org/cifs/index.html for your essential reference on
these matters.
