Use my Linux as security provider?

My father office's network has 20-30 PC using Win98, but no server existing.

I want to use a Linux as file & print server for them. I know that I should use Samba, but do I need to install Mars for them to logon this network? Can Mars work for Win98's "Netware Client"?

Thank you.

I have used Linux clients to connect with Netware (4.1, 4.2, and 5.0) servers but never tried the Mars package. You don't need Mars, however, if all you want is to connect M$ clients - Samba is the right package for you.

Samba worked great when I set it up on to serve 50 users and 250G of storage. You will be better off just sticking with it than adding another layer of complexity by trying to use Netware protocols unnecessarily with Mars and the Netware client on a network with no Netware.

Yes, they all are M$ clients, but there is a point for me to thinking mars is:

I have some 486PCs with small harddisk (80MB to 120MB), I want them to be a Novell remote printer because to setup PC to run rprinter should be little as two floppies.

Please tell me if my thinking is wrong or how can setup a print server with samba network in small harddisk size (free software)?

Thanks.
