There's a fairly current samba in nekoware, if that's what you mean(?). I've never actually used it but I think once you get it setup properly it lets you drag 'n drop between systems...

Re: Octane PCI Card Cage?

013-2304-003 is definitely the Octane card cage, and dust is definitely one of the worst enemies of Octane connectors, congrats on getting it going! :D
