sharing drives accross mutiple os's

I currently have a freebsd system running that I have a couple 24/7 deamons running on. This system is system is linked via a router to a windows machine, and soon to be another machine(havent decided what os yet). What I want to do is allow my unix machine to see specific foulders on my windows 98 machine. Would I use samba to do this? And if so, any sugestions on how I would set up the .conf file to point at the windows drive. Actualy, I want to point at some specific high level folders on the windows machine. for general purposes. And all drives on the windows machine for root purposes.
I've read enough to know, and can probably set up for the windows machine to see the unix drives. But I want this to occur both ways.
Any help is most gratefull. Thank you for your time.
