no, that's what standard documentation is for. Samba books are many many hundreds of pages long, and thinking we can just just recite all the important stuff just for you is a bit rude, don't you think? Try this - http://tinyurl.com/32zwntt

But if you are dual booting a machine, why do you need samba in the first place?

It is definitely. But it might not help OP. He wants a step by step spoon fed procedure.

You could use SWAT (a browser based tool to set up shares and administer samba)

Hello,

The best howto, step by step, copy/paste guides can be found on this site in my opinion:
HowToForge Samba

I'm sure you'll find one that suits your needs. When having questions applying the commands you can always turn to LQ for answers.

Kind regards,

Eric
