There is the Samba "swat" tool.

and start the swat server with chkconfig and service (or just start it
with service when you need it).  I think you need xinetd too.  Then
from a browser running on the same machine, browse  I believe when it asks you to login you can use

*BUT* there are lots of security risks/concerns using this tool, which
is why it isn't installed by default.
