>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.
