Samba is not what you need, as Samba implements what NT/2K/XP Server
supports. It would be fun to see a shared scanner from a Windows server, but
ain't gonna happen.
From linux, you need to set up Saned, and install sanetwain or xsane for
windows. This is a little more complicated than using SWAT I'm afraid, and
if you want to do it, I suggest you learn how to use a scanner at the command
line, as this will give you excellent experience on how to start doing it on
a network level.
