Exclamation Mandrake, XP Pro Help with file/print sharing

Can any body help me with my situation...
I can't say that I know exactly what I am doing because I don't know much about Linux.
But...... I am trying to set up a print server on Mandrake 10.1 and have my 4 XP Pro machines access all the printers.
I also want a folder on my Mandrake desktop to be viewable and editable from all my XP Pro machines, and have it show up as a shared folder on all the XP Pro machines. Can somebody give me a clear, concise way to go about doing this. I am a total newbie and I don't know all the tricks or anything.
Your help is greatly appreciated..... :-)
P.s. I supposedly have everything set up right, I am able to see my linux server on my xp machines, but i cant access it because when I click on it it says that the network path was not found.
