Well firstly do you have a network setup like something such as a workgroup or domain?

Once you've got that accomplished you've got to configure samba (smb.conf) so that you can access the debian server.

Any more questions... just reply.

Then you simply would define the workgroup and from there on out go on the debian machine and create users for each computer that uses windows and a username on that machine. so then set a directory where you would like to store your files and be sure to set permissions correctly.
