I don't see any reason it shouldn't work, you might want to just give it a shot.

You're already running SAS from a networked fileserver, Samba is pretty much a functional equivalent for WinNT/2K in this regard. You're not running SAS from the Solaris box, you're hosting it there. Though fnord knows, the wrath of SAS/Legal may descend on you for this....

Any reason you can't just try (and report back the results)?
