Linux Router/Firewall/Samba File Server

I am very much a noobie at working with Linux based servers. I want to setup a Linux router which I currently have running centOS 4 (RHES4) to do firewalling and routing for a 10 client network. The network currently is plugged into a switch which is being routed through a W2000AS box with a DSL connection. I would also like to have a shared area on this machine which I already setup to share files to WinXP based clients. If anyone can be of any help or point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.
