Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Assuming all three OSs are running on one machine (and not at the same time), a samba share will do you no good.
LVMs (standard in Fedora installs) are great until something breaks, then they are a royal PITA. Almost everyone who has had one fail (that did not absolutely need one) will not use one again. With the exception of contiguous space all the advantages of a LVM can be easily be done without using it. In short, when LVM blows, hang on to your shorts.
As far as the WUBI problem; that is probably better answered over on the Ubuntu forum (its their baby).
WUBI would have put all its data onto a single file on the disk. You need two steps to read out that file:
1. mount the NTFS partition - once you do this then you can find that wubi file somewhere in the mounted directory
2. mount the wubi file using the filesystem loop device:
mount /mnt/ntfs/mywubifile /mnt/wubifs -o loop
This mounts the file /mnt/ntfs/mywubifile onto the mount point /mnt/wubifs
If you do not use 'autofs' you will need to specify the filesystem to mount via the '-t' flag - for example - mount -t ext3
You can do all this as 'root'; if a normal user needs regular access then you should set up fstab entries.
