DOS Client for Linux box

How can I set up a linux box to act as the main network server for DOS/WFW/WIN95/NT clients?  What software needs to be runnibng on the Linux and DOS/etc machines?  I have heard of SMB, but I would really like to use TCPIP or IPX if possible.  Also, I would like to leave open the possibility of adding an NT server later, so compatible protocols all-around would be great.  TCPIP is preferred so that the network can be IP-addx based.

Also, when booting the Linux kernel (2.1), autoprobe finds my card okay, but there are no /dev/eth* files in my device directory.  I installed originally with SlackWare 3.0.  Are there supposed to be eth0,eth1, etc. files in the 'dev' directory?  I have since compiled and

Samba uses IP. You can setup your Linux box with samba and share printers and filesystems for smb clients (lan manager, NT, 95 and windows, etc...) using tcp/ip. I use it with Win95 and NT4.0.
you can see your network card with 'ifconfig' or 'cat /proc/ioports' (or devices or interrupts) but it is not in /dev.
