    Perhaps this (which was the second hit from Google for "How to set up Samba server in fedora"): http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/...a_Samba_Server

    It is many years since I last set up a Samba server, and I had to ask someone else for some help - but I'm pretty sure it's not THAT hard.

    Setting up Samba is pretty trivial, as long as you don't do complicated things. A domain controller is considerably more difficult.

    Samba is pretty much installing and then modifying the default config file a little bit.
    All the buzzt!

    Ditto, altho I never actually asked for help. I think you can just read thru the docs and do it.

    Depending on what you're doing and what you know, it might be easier to just use Network File Sharing (definitely simpler), because I believe most versions of windows also support NFS (altho I have only used it linux to linux).

    The Linux Documentation Project has some how-to's on NFS.

    I'm pretty sure the reason I had to ask for help had little to do with setting up Samba, and a bit more to do with being on a corporate network and having to access some specific parts of the network - but as I said, it was several years ago - I'm pretty sure it was before 2001, so about 8 years back.

    All I ever used it for for was file sharing, which is why I would say just use NFS -- but I don't know if a normal windows install supports it, maybe you need NT or whatever they call it now.

    I didn't exactly use Samba in a corporate setting -- I used it in an industial park building that I had access to night and secretly performed little experiments with the half a dozen networked computers. This came to an abrupt and unfortunate end. People who don't own screwdrivers can reach near seizure states when they see the guts of their workstation left strewn across a desk at 7:45am...
