Samba and Interfacing with the Windoze Network

Since my workplace has a Windoze share that they use all the time, my biggest concern with this install was interfacing with that in a reasonable manner. By ``reasonable'' I do not mean big blue-and-green buttons with ``click here to view all files'' tabs and talking paperclips (though you're welcome to those if you want -- see vigor if you really want the paperclip!), but without having to maintain a dual boot to Windoze.

This should have been easy. But since I didn't know anything about kernel modules, and little things went wrong, it was harder than it should have been.
