Install and configure Samba to include the Workgrougp name used by the Windows machines on the LAN.
There are many threads here on the forum that relate to samba installationn and configuration. Just use the search function to find all of the threads.
Also at the top of this page is a link to Tutorials and in Networking there is a link for Samba basics.
Samba will allow the Windows machines to see the Linux filesystem and Map Network Drives to the Linux box.
