Questions on smbclient messaging

I'm running Samba v2.0.5a on a RedHat v6.0 system.  This server
provides SMB shares to Win98, OS/2 and Linux clients.  Everything is
running fine with the Win98 and OS/2 clients, but I have a few
questions regarding Samba and Linux clients.

1. Is there a way for Linux systems to receive SMB messages?
Something analogous to Windows' "WinPopup" or OS/2's "Network
Messaging" applications?

2. If there is no way to receive SMB messages on a Linux system, is
there at least some way to know that a given machine cannot accept
messages?  Right now I have no way to determine if a given machine
(i.e. one running Linux) cannot receive messages.

Thank you.
