    But you can't really "control" them with Samba.. if they are on Linux then I'd suggest SSH.

    You can also remote-control in graphical mode with tightvnc. Works on At least windows and linux, and yes... It works

    This is what i'd sugest, and for copying files that's simple enough, you can use the scp command.

    The usage of scp is the same as the cp command eg:
    cp source destination
    but for 1 thing, the remote filesystem, it's shown as:

    rather than simply a folder.

    or u could just mount a samba or nfs share and copy it direct. The advantage of mounting nfs/samba is that u wont need to input a password to copy, though, you could probably setup scp to use key authentication rather than input auth.
