Anything better than samba?

Is there anything better than samba? I want a client that can login to an NT server and easily access files / directorys, somthing like the dos client would be good.

Samba lets MS clients DOS/Win3.x/Win95/WinNT see a Linux box as a MS server
in  mode each native client would see any other MS server.

Samba is not a client to run on a DOS/WIN machine it is a server package for Linux.

For Linux to use a MS resource you can use smbmount to mount MS filesystems
and Use the standard lpd printing to MS servers.

That's prety mucch all that is available (for free) at this time.

Samba usually is used to access share on Unix/Linux for Windows.
You also may use it the other way around with smbclient, but this is a bit cumbersome.

Why not simply ftp to your NT server (you must have installed and started the ftp service there).
