Question Samba for slow folk

Is there a help file available anywhere on the net that shows step by step how to setup and configure SAMBA? Something that is really easy to follow, in plain English, without alot of acronyms to confuse slow folks like me?

I have two computers hooked up in a peer-to-peer fashion (one computer is a dual boot with WinME and Mandrake 8 Linux, the other is Win95). I want the Win95 box and the other box (when it is booted into Mandrake) to be able to share files and printers; but I haven't the faintest clue how to configure SAMBA. Can anyone help?

I am currently new to linux and am in the process of substituting NT Servers with Linux. As I am currently learning about Samba, I cannot answer the question, but can offer a reference to a source that may be of some help. A good book on the subject of Samba, which is part of the Craig Hunt Linux Library is a book called:
"Linux Samba Server Administration"
As I learn more, I will hopefully be able to answer questions instead of giving references to solutions. Hope this was a point in the right direction.
