There are webdav solutions out there.  We use smbwebclient.php, which
gives a web based interface into SMB shares... which could come off
anything (Linux, etc).

Even better (IMHO) for Windows users it for them to use just
SMB directly (best when possible)... or use WinSCP (again, if
possible).  Using the web interface is slower with regards
to uploads, etc.
