Well, you don't need a GUI to access the files and share them in the
sense of raw file share functionality. I think perhaps the OP was
getting at "sharing" at a higher level, like Windows User A being
able to hand off an Office file to FreeBSD User B and User B being
able to whip out OpenOffice and edit that file.
There's probably a few on this list who'd be comfortable editing an
Office doc in vi, but I personally wouldn't recommend it. 8)
A /complete/ sharing solution may need to include the users and
their need for some X Windows apps. The OP didn't state such a need
explicitly but to me it seemed implied that the FreeBSD PC needs to
open the Windows files and probably vice versa.
