I don't know CIFS, but for network filesystems in general, a server
running on the Hurd should be about the same as a (user space) server
on any unix-like system.

Te client-side is more interesting. I think good places to start are the
rpc interface for filesystems, the Hurd libnetfs library, and the
source for other other network filesystem translators like the nfs
translator and the ftpfs translator.

Happy hacking,
