Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

yeah you can create a shared folder in Linux, you dont need command line to create a new folder just create it under /home, calle it whatever you want then right click on it and go to the propperties and select share folder, then create the share and the permission. Next time you have the two computers in the same network just lick on the network icon on your side panel then you will see all the browseable folders in the network.
This will be the ideal and easiest way but you havent say what Linux distribution you are using and what kind of connections are you doing. Are you in the same network or are you doing it over the net? what graphical interface do you have in your Linux computer?
I will second what cbtshare said. Samba was created to share between *nix and Windows.
I even used it to map a "U:\" drive for my girlfriend's Windows computers just like the U:\ drive she has at work. (Actually, it's /home/[username]/sdb1/[username], but, in her Windows, I mapped it as U:\.)
The most helpful Samba reference I have found (at least through v. 3) is Samba by Example.
