Exclamation 2 Questions: Network File Sharing and Sound Card

I'm COMPLETELY new to LindowsOS and the whole linux environment so i was hoping somebody could help me out with something. I'm networking with my brother (he's running Windows XP) and i have Windows XP and now LindowsOS 4.5 on my computer (2 partitions, same drive). When i'm in Windows, i share my Mp3 folder so he can just play songs through our network instead of having them on his computer taking up space. What i wanna know is how do i share my Mp3 folder (from my WindowsXP NTFS partition) through LindowsOS so my brother can access it, just like i do when i'm running XP.

And my sound card question..

I have a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum w/ 6.1 surround. When i boot into Lindows, i get sound but only in my front speakers, just isn't configured the way it should be. Anybody know how to fix that?
