[Samba] Make CIFS look like NFS

You can have an NFS mount on your Nix box like /JOBS/stuff and a CIFS  
mount on XP like \\JOBS\stuff.

In this case, JOBS is the Samba server name.

This is how I maintain the same paths in scripts on diff platforms.   
Al you have to ensure is that your app will obey UNC paths so that a  
drive letter is never saved out in the file.
