printer queues and mapped drives

We are a Netware and Windows shop but are now considering changing to Linux servers. I need to setup a Linux server that can service print queues. I also need that server to have some drive space so that windows clients can map drive letters to it and save info. Is that possible?

Yes it is possible. Use CUPS for your printing needs (or click print-options in you graphics). Use the file /etc/smb.conf (samba) to setup the directories which should be shared with windows users - og again click your way :-)
