I don't think so but if you want to educate me on why you believe this
to be true, by all means...

it seems silly to use DHCP and not provide DNS server addresses as all
of the computers on the LAN would probably be well served by using the
same DNS Server

maybe, but it is an operator's choice: please note that usually DHCP
is not running on my home network, all IP's should be very well known
in a home network, shouldn't they??
DHCP was started only because a DHCP server was required by SC101.

Linux does's called samba

Sorry, but SC101 in a Linux environment is not seen, the device has a
strange file system, it is seen as a computer resource also under
Windows, not as a Network resource: anyway, scope of starting DHCP was
to have IP's numbers broadcasted on the network, and to check if at
least in a Windows network device was running fine.

It seems silly to use devices that don't support NFS but SMB/CIFS
protocols are supported easily enough with samba. It should be
reasonably trivial to get Linux to connect to that device.
