It was also how the Linux-based ARM PDA Sharp Zaurus exported local data to
the PC it was syncing with.  Latest version of the OS for that must be about
four years now, so the unit is just old enough that I _think_ it must have
run Samba 2.X.  If Samba 3.X fails you may want to try that, at least it's
known to have been run on ARM.
