Your going to have to setup a network and install Samba and then configure it.

Or One easy Trick I do is just share files with Windows 7 Public Folders. Just connect on Fedora using nautilus File manager > File > connect to server and then in "type" scroll to "windows share" and in "Server" put in windows 7 ip address.
note must be connected in network and also I think you might need the same workgroup name
