Making a Linux NAS Server


I have a question, I want to make a linux NAS server... Here's what I need it to do:

1.) i want it to go out to a Windows share and grab the files from it and copy it to a directory on my linux box.
2.) it needs to do this every morning at 6:00 AM before everyone gets into work.
3.) I want it to then delete all the files from the directory after a week and start over.

** I also want it to be able to share to a fwe of these windows users so they can go out and grab a file if they need to (incase they deleted it off their local machine or something like that.

any ideas or help would be appriciated =).

Thanks a lot in advance for anything you guys have to offer.

1) Mount the SMB file systems from your Windows system and copy away...
2) Setup a cron job for 5AM...
3) Setup another crontab to rm the files...
