Linux + Win XP composite networking?

I wana set up a network with a few linux and a few window XP machines
And One of the linux machines will act as a gateway to internet.

Problem i am facing here is that i cant understand how the users of the whole network will share their files/folders.
In a pure windows envoirnment it is quiet easy to share a folder, and it instantly becomes available to other users on the network.I wonder how can i provide the same facility on a compoosite Linux+windows network
Please help
thankx in advance
