Setting up Samba

There is a nice How-to down at the ubuntu forums for setting up Samba.

Samba is a network protocol which allows Linux systems to connect to Windows Systems. It imitates the windows protocol enabling Linux users to access windows shares.
This guide is for Ubuntu systems but it's supposed to work on any system.

If you're running a debian-based system, then you should not find any problems. If not, you should replace a few commands (ex. instead of using "apt-get install package" you should install that package using your distro's package manager. Note that some packages may have different names on some distros, in which case you should search your package repositories.
