Share Access with Samba?

I have a Windows Drive D: which is only 2 GB. I have shared with my friends. Now I have Linux Free Space of 10 GB. I want to share a 8GB Folder with my Friends. How Can I get it be Shared with the help of Linux Machines.

I assume you'd like to have [public] share browseable/writeable by everyone on the network. Something like:
        comment = Public Share
        browsable = yes
        path = /data/pub
        public = yes
        writable = yes
        guest ok = yes
Talking about precise size of the share, you can setup quota but it can be applied only on the partition, not on individual directories, so it would be good to create separate partition, mount it and share the mountpoint.
