Hi there.

Samba allows you to share your UNIX filesystem to a Microsoft machine as well as print services on the UNIX box.

Checkout http://www.samba.org/ for downloads/info.

after you download and install it, you may need some quick, easy info. check out this site which helped me a lot. just ignore the mandrake specific installation instructions, the configuration is the same on all unices.

You might even want to look at Oreilly's Samba book, it's pretty good.
