I don't know if a small TCP/IP and SMB client exist for DOS or
fit on a single diskette. However if you meant a Intel machine,
you may want to look at picoBSD at They
have an OS running with a TCP/IP stack on 1.2M floppy. You could then 
maybe used smbclient or Sharity-Light. It is just a suggestion, 
it may not all fit on a 1.44M floppy.
