That's difficult to say, as the exact RAM requirements very
much depend on the actual client actions. If I remember
correctly, last time I measured it an idle client added
roughly 300k memory footprint to the running system. I did
not measure though how much just starting Samba was.

For installation, there's tons of stuff around via
www.samba.org. For internals, ask on samba-technical or join
the #samba-technical channel on irc.freenode.net.
