I googled general SMTP server installation and got these two step-by-step instructions. See if it helps.

More information would be needed if you specific questions about your operating systems. Good luck.

You forgot step 4:
4. DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK

All you've posted so far is your homework questions. You need to show effort on your part...show us what you've done/tried, and tell us where you're stuck. Otherwise, try Google, your textbooks, and your teachers.
