I think you mean RHEL (Redhat Enterprise Linux) correct?
If so, samba should be included with RHEL 4.6.

Start with the official guide:

Then read what you need from the Samba site:

It is not very difficult if you read through the documentation.

Windows will automatically work with Samba. It will think your Linux computer is just another Windows computer. No special work needs to be done on Windows.
