I have a home network running 3 desktop machines with Windows XP Pro,
and a webserver, fileserver and laptop with FreeBSD 5.x.

What's the best way to be able to exchange files and directory shares
between the two environments?

It would also be nice to share the printer which is connected to one of
the Windows boxes via USB.

I hear that Samba is the way to go, but also have heard about such
client-based utilities like Sharity-light which also do the trick.

Thanks alot in advance.
