I installed a DD-WRT firmware,all configured, but i have few problems. Compared to OpenWRT in DD-WRT I cannot install any additional packages.
I need a Samba Net, I would like to have ability to start and stop windows service from router.
In Windows it is very easy to use command "sc start|stop"
Is it possible to install Samba tools on DD-WRT router?

OK, thank you
Now I understand process, I can install new packages but only on USB drive.
Basically yes, however you can make a small permanent storage (/jffs) when you enable JFFS2 on Administration/Management (only routers with sufficent flash)
I am not a big fan, your flash ram is not intended for read/write operations (will wear out) and the only time I bricked a router was when that was enabled and I upgraded without first disabling jffs2 and reboot.
