>Can a Macintosh access Samba file and printer shares?
OS 9 - Yes, but you need a program like 'Dave' (www.thursby.com)
OS X - Yes, a Samba client is included with OS X and can be accessed
by either the commandline, or 'Connect to server' option under the Go
menu in the finder. If you use the finder, you must type in the
address as: 'smb://machine/sharename'. I'm not certain about printer
shares, but I believe not at this moment.. that might change with OS
X 10.2 coming out in August.
