Use Samba. I don't know if centOS includes the package but it is easily downloaded and installed if not.

There is a world of information our there about setting up Samba, just google it.

The instructions at are excellent but may be a little daunting if you are a Windoze guy. Things aren't quite as 'point and click' as you may be used to but then they aren't so bloated and crash prone.

Trust me, it is easy to set-up and is extremely reliable. Stick with it!
