    I'm not seeing any benefits to enableing this "share" for my router, am I not understanding clearly? I thought Samba FS would make a Share on my Router be accessiabal by Web Browser? Am I wrong??? What does Samba FS do?

    SAMBA is one way for linix, unix, bsd type systems to see and use windows file sharing...

    you would use it makw a share on your linux, unix, bsd box seeable from a windows box...

    If you want to use JFFS to do things like install packages via ipkg, a samba share is pretty valuable.

    If you're running the standard sources, and want to install OpenVPN for instance, you'll need to have extra space to do so (if you're using a WRT54G, or any other router with low space.)

    Using samba, you can install as many extra packages as you like. You can also keep scripts, etc, there.
