Samba on a mini network

Hello all!

Well I got a little network at my home and I was wondering if it's possible to run Samba on it. The network is kinda weirdly set up so I made a scheme that shows how is everything connected for a better explanation. And here it is:

Now I would like to setup my Samba on my Linux Server of course (Debian 3.1 netinst version) and I would like to be able to see let's say PC #2's files on my PC #1, I would also like to share printers and scanners. I've already got a connection to the PS2 so I don't urgently need for Samba to take that over but if it does, that much better.

Now the question is; is it even possible for my Laptop to be able to use the printers in my network, since there is another router in the way?

I would need a complete "guide" on how to set this up. I have no experience with Samba, and my Linux skills are poor as well. So please if somebody has some time, please give me the full tutorial on how to set everything up.

Thank you in advance,
