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

Start with the official guide:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...de_/Samba.html

Then read what you need from the Samba site:
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/toc.html

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.
