Hi as I know samba is an "old" protocol,
CIFS would be the newer version.

But we use NFS, which is more reliable in my point of view (unix world).

Best regards,

Try "Likewise Open" google it and you will get nice tutorials how to set it up and use.

For file access between Windows and Linux, Samba is the best.

Between Linux or UNIX machines, use NFS.
