URGENT: need simple smb live distro

I need a small fast live distro of Linux that is simply a smb server.
I want something that boots up, and instantly shares the hard drives of a computer.

We have a windows server that stores 1.5 TB of ghost images, we want to back up this onto a server using linux/samba. I'm looking for something very simple, a live cd, no configuration. It simply boots and shares the drives.
Has anyone heard of such a distro.
