Go to mandrake control center/mount points/NFS mount points configuration(for linux machines) and samba for windows. It's quite intuitive and works!. go also to share partition. Do the same in the other linux machines. To browse your linux machines from the windows one, I got it whith samba configurated with swat (samba web administration tool)

The easiest way to browse FROM Linux TO windows is with Linneighborhood. It has a nice GUI that allows this and you can mount those shared Windows drives as well.

I second wyohman. LinNeighborhood is the closest thing to window's Network Neighborhood that I've found!
