To use samba with WfWg, you need only TCP/IP as a protocol driver, i.e.
you can safely delete IPX/SPX and Netbeui. You do need Microsoft Network
as your network choice, but that is a different level of the protocol (and
different set of dialog boxes from network setup).
The above applies to the MSCLient DOS client as well.
