i assume you _have_ to use ancient software - production server, right?
Debian is "bleeding edge" compared to this ;-)

Like Volker said, don't expect more than basic functionality. Copying
files to a Samba server should work. Even your neighbours from Redmond
know about backwards compatibility.

I think you should give it a try. A basic samba installation is set up
in minutes and deleted even faster!

Greets to Seattle (loved it!),
