I use knoppix... it *can* write to ntfs if this is what you want, but I would only recommend reading from ntfs and writing to fat partitions

SDL can, too (Damn Small Linux), and actually most liveCD's I know can. A DSL (called Insert) is by the way included on the full version of the UBCD which includes many other usefull tools.

You'd have to edit the /etc/samba/smb.conf file to get access to the knoppix box, but this is somewhat compliacted, and after a reboot you loose the setup, with a liveCD. If you have an existing PC which can share files, like Windows XP, 2kx server or 2k, then it is easier to connect the knoppix box to one of these. Is that what you want to do?
