Installing Samba

Like anything in Debian, installing samba is easy:

apt-get update
apt-get install samba smbclient

But, because you'll probably want to print, too, you'll need all of the following (or so a website told me, and it worked):

apt-get install cupsys cupsys-bsd cupsys-client foomatic-bin samba smbclient gs-esp a2ps

(You don't have to do that now -- if you don't want to print, or don't want to do it through CUPS, only bother with the samba and smbclient packages.
