OS X connects to SMB servers out of the box. OS 9 does not, however 
there is third party software (Dave from Thurlby Systems ?) that adds 
this capability.

Be aware however that Netatalk sores Mac files differently to OS X 
accessing the same server via SMB - though there is a forked project 
(under a different name that escapes me at the moment) that is 
engineering a version of Netatalk to support AFP3 and compatibility 
between the two access methods.
