Connection Windows to a Linux server


This is the situation.
We currently have a unix server with users and these users are placed into groups with the current limitations etc...
We have a windows server with IIS and ASP.

This windows server has a sort of "my documents" maps for users of a certain group.
Example, the group "people" on the unix server, can only write in the map "people" on the windows server. while the group "other" can not write in the map of the "people" group.

Now, we want to make an intranet in PHP, so i build a debian sarge server with mysql, apache and php. On the server we want to make the same map-structure as on the previous "windows-server".

So is there a way that we can get the users from the first unix server able to write in their own specific maps on the debian server?

and if so, how do I have to do all this, i just knew how to make the linux server a webserver, but that's it...

I hope you can understand my question?

Not completely, but if I understand it correctly, you need to install samba and create the proper shares, (samba)users and the appropriate rights and privilages. Security note; you might consider diskquota's so people don't accidently dump too many files on the linux server and fill the hardrive, which might cause problems if you use a fairly simple partitioning scheme (say only swap, /boot and /).
The folks over at O'Reilly have written a pretty good book about samba which is even availble for download at the samba website (or even provided with the package itself, I'm not sure which).

Hope I understood your question enough to point you into the right direction.
