No Windows in our house.  I chose samba because I found 'howtos' for it
more quickly, plus someone, somewhere, on some forum said that it was
more suitable, at least for the needs I was looking at it for (music shares).

Cool.  I set up byRequest and can listen to our growing collection of
ripped CDs on the TiVo, or listen to audio streams (which we do 99% of 
the time).

It also supports satellite radio (XM?) devices hooked up to a Linux box,
and stream that over to the TiVo, too.

We could also do photos and yada yada... sorry, getting way off-topic.
