Here is text from the Samba README file. Perhaps it could be used to 
replace the one-line sentence describing Samba at the beginning of
the BLFS instructions (there seems to be a desire to more fully
describe Samba's capability):

"Here is a very short list of what samba includes, and what it does.
For many networks this can be simply summarized by "Samba provides
a complete replacement for Windows NT, Warp, NFS or Netware servers."

- a SMB server, to provide Windows NT and LAN Manager-style file and print
  services to SMB clients such as Windows 95, Warp Server, smbfs and others.

- a Windows NT 4.0 Domain Controller replacement.

- a file/print server that can act as a member of a Windows NT 4.0
  or Active Directory domain.

- a NetBIOS (rfc1001/1002) nameserver, which amongst other things gives
  browsing support. Samba can be the master browser on your LAN if you wish.

- a ftp-like SMB client so you can access PC resources (disks and
  printers) from UNIX, Netware, and other operating systems

- a tar extension to the client for backing up PCs

- limited command-line tool that supports some of the NT administrative
  functionality, which can be used on Samba, NT workstation and NT server."
