Samba shares are basically Windows Network shares, just open source reverse-engineered instead of built by Microsoft. You can map them from within ZTreeWin like any other network mapping, by pressing [L]og drive, [F4] Map network drive. This will open Windows' regular Map Network Drive dialog, where you can choose a drive letter, and enter the UNC path to your Samba share, as well as (optionally) a username and password.

The name SaMBa is a play on the name of the Microsoft SMB (Server Message Block) protocol that underlies the Network File Sharing functionality in Windows.

As for an FTP server, I seem to remember that you need a separate utility to do that. Googling for "mapping an FTP server to a drive letter" should return some useful results.

Anything mapped to a drive letter is accessible using ZTreeWin.
