File Sharing Windows and linux together ?


can this be done , i'm setup a network here in the office.

6 pc running XP pro

1 linux server, >>

the linux server will be doing the following

1. sending fax, via fax modem shared on all 6 above systems
2. web , using xampp software
3. FTP, using xampp software
4. Database, using xampp software
5. File sharing, all 6 xp systems will use linux server as a main backup
6. shared printer.
7. etc


is it better for me to use windows xp for the server ?
