[Samba] Samba servers

I'm new to SAMBA and am somewhat confused. So I'll get right to the point.

I am running both UNIX (Solaris 9) and Windows 2000. I have a system running on Windows
will be creating some large files. These files need to be input to a system running on
the UNIX (Solaris) box.

I would like to be able to have the system on the UNIX box be able to read the files on
Windows by using SAMBA to make it a mountable drive. Is that possible? Everything I read
always seems to indicate that Windows can only be a SAMBA Client and not a server.

I really appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks in advance.
