Put the most recent Win32 version of Apache on the machine that's 
serving the files, make it listen to a different port if there's a web 
server there already, point Apache's web root to the "shared" directory. 
You can even password-protect it in Apache if you want.
Presto, fast and reliable file sharing over HTTP.

NetBIOS - just say no.
