You'll need to use "Client for Microsoft Networks" on the Windows
(NT/9X) side.  At least, that how I understand it to work for NT --
never actually done it.

>2. Do I need any special options in the kernel compile to be turned

If you want to be able to mount remote systems on your Linux machine,
you'll need to compile the SMB filesystem into the kernel or a module.
Otherwise, just your basic network support.
