Creating/using a simple Windows share: easy. Yes, it's essentially the same as XP.

Joining a Windows Server 2008 domain: also possible, but a bit more complicated:

'Hope that helps .. PSM

Windows 7 is a client. All you can do is shares. You don't have to worry about A/D. So it should be easy, too ;-)

Here's a link on sharing between Windows 7 and XP:

Sharing between Windows 7 and Linux should be equivalent.
