So you want to store the files on the NT server for the purpose of
backing them up regularly.  What you want is a product called Sharity.
(Pointers exist somewhere on the Samba web site.)

But actually, in my opinion, what you really want is to leave the
directory tree on your SCO box and share it using Samba, then have the
NT server mount this share and back it up.

How to configure all this depends a great deal on what kind of backup
software you have on NT.  From the SCO end, you probably don't need an
elaborate setup; read the Samba docs for how to create a simple share.
