Do I need the smb protocol to use samba from my win2kpro box? If so, how do I obtain?
All help is appreciated.

I'm assuming you want to network a Linux machine with a win2k machine. Obviously you don't need to install samba on the windoze machine but for FC first check if you have it installed already:
# rpm -qa | grep samba
if it returns several packages then it's installed and needs configuring via the /etc/samba/smb.conf file, or through the samba GUI under Applications->System Settings->Server Settings->Samba.
If not, you can get it through the yum package installer like so:
# yum install samba
