File sharing with Win XP Pro and MDK 9.1 how to?

How can I set up my network to share files between my Linux Laptop, and 2 other Win XP boxes? I know it takes Samba, but I have no idea how to set it up to work.

This is probably the number one most asked and most answered question on the forum. Please take a moment or two to use the search feature (look at the top line menu bar, slightly to the right of center) and read some of the other posts on WinXP/Samba integration. If you still have specific questions, feel free to post them.
