Simple Sharepoint Question - The Files

hi all,

Simple Sharepoint question with WSS3.0 on SBS2003 - I understand that representations of the files are stored inside the database, rather than as files themselves.

When our users navigate in windows via smb to \\sharepointname - these files show up in there, how does that work??

I'm going to move WSS3.0 to a new server, and need to know how to carry this functionality over....?

Thanks

Technically if you do your migration properly you don't have to worry about this. However if you'd like to learn how SharePoint works when it comes to storing documents and the "Explorer view", here are couple of resources
