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).

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.
