OK I have some doubt's

I'm creating a VPN, Linux Server <-> Windows XP client
And I created a Dialin Server in Linux using mgetty and pptp.

My question is:
Once the client login my computer, can I share a specific folder to my WinXP client in a really FRIENDLY way? I mean so she can see it like just another folder in his network.
notice: "my client is a person that knows how to turn on the computer and move the mouse"... So!, I don't want to use FTP or Telnet...

To do this should do I have to use Samba?
Or do I have to use a FTP???

I haven't done this yet, this is my first VPN so I really don't know what is going to happen...
I configured the mgetty already and the pptp.

OK... again:
[Linux Dialin Server + mgetty + pptp] <--> [Wintendo XP Client dials to my number through his winmodem and needs very important document in special folder.]
Thank's... anyone...

... --- ... ... --- ... ... --- ...
or should I say SOS! HELP!!!!
