[Samba] Samba as remote file share

I have a client who is hoping to use Samba over the internet.  He hopes 
to be able to setup a single mount point that can be used by employees 
from various locations via their broadband internet connections.  The 
clients will be a mixture of Linux, Windows 98, and Windows 2000/XP 
machines.  I know that a solution like this would be possible if all of 
the clients and the server were on the same LAN, however, I've not had 
any luck attempting to deploy Samba over the internet.  Is this a 
feasible solution with Samba or should I have him look elsewhere?  If 
Samba will cut it does anyone have any pointers or suggestions for the 
most secure way to implement a setup like this?  Thanks in advance for 
any help...
