Any Samba hints would also be appreciated.
Cannot help out with samba but re the formatting- to share either use
Fat16 or, better, FAT32. Linux can read ntfs but cannot (yet) write
to it.

Linux *can* write to ntfs (for many years it couldn't), but it's "generally not recommended".

Some links:

This first link gives you a very sure way to write to NTFS, it uses the windows driver
ntfs.sys so it is very reliable. I use it in order to share files.

You've also a commercial driver sold by Paragon software and called 'ntfs for linux'

I've tested it, it works well but I've better the ntfs.sys solution.
