I have a FBSD machine running Samba.  I 'share' certain directories
within smb.conf.
When I browse the Samba shares from my Windows XP Pro machine, not only
can I read and write to them, I can mount them as as a Network drive,
which is essentialy the same as a local drive.

If I misunderstood the original question, I'm sorry, but it will work
the way I have just outlined.
