Setting up a Linux Domain Server for XP

Hi everyone!

I have three computers running windows XP and one linux box. I would like to use the Linux Box to run as a domain for these three computers (So, have three login names that can be logged in on each of the computers, and have the data be the same)

Is this possible to do with linux? (create a domain for all XP users to join)?

Thank you!
