Samba is an implementation of the CIFS file sharing protocol. If you
need to export files to a Windows machine, that's exactly what Samba can

There are lots of folk using Samba in embedded environments. I don't
have any experience with these, but I would guess that it would be
pretty simple to get Samba running in an embedded Linux.

Have a read of http://us1.samba.org/samba/devel/ to get started. If you
have any coding/development questions, ask on samba-technical at samba.org.
If you have any usage questions, ask on samba at samba.org.

Have fun!
