     In terms of networking... you will have to actually use preset  
or DHCP provided values as a lot of domain stuff used in Windows does  
NOT have functionality for other operating systems like FreeBSD,  
unless there is a DNS and DHCP server that's litigating whether or  
not you have a set hostname and can obtain an IP based on your PC's  
Mac Address.
     In terms of filesharing... do you need server or client type  
filesharing and (if you do use X), what is your desktop environment  
(KDE, Gnome, XFCE, etc)? Knowing your  X setup may help determine  
what way to best help you out with Samba.
