Despite your plea, I'm going to send you to read the Knoppix Samba FAQ
You mentioned in your post that you "try running the /etc/samba/smb.conf". smb.conf is a configuration file, not an executable program. You need to edit smb.conf to specify which directories on your Knoppix box you want to share with your Windows boxes. Since the contents of your smb.conf will be specific to your particular network, you need to learn how to edit smb.conf. I suggest you search this site for "smb.conf" for examples.
My home network is completely Linux so I don't have an example for you.
