There are various methods you could do this from a Linux box, as the
tools are in the kernel, and there's also a smbmount listed in the
configure for samba, but again for linux only.
So the short answer would appear to be not using samba on solaris.
Perhaps MS's SFU package would help you out some? I think you could use
that to share your cd-rom over nfs, or MS's implementation of nfs.
