I'm using Samba 2.0 and all my client Win95 is runing bouth TCP/IP and
NETBUI and every thing works very well!!

>>1) Setup is more complex than Sendmail (it set the standard for complexity)

Not so complex, the defaults work very good and I love to be able to
control the datails I need to control.

For me Samba is very very good!!!
